Collaborating to Provide Thanksgiving Meals and Clothing
Shortly before Thanksgiving, 300 families were blessed through the collaborative efforts of Westridge Middle School staff and community partners. The event supported families from Shawnee Mission West area schools as well as refugees and several Kansas City, Kansas, families. Appropriately titled “Thanksgiving #givehope,” families were blessed with all of the groceries needed for a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner. In addition, a general store was set up to help offset the household needs of those families. The general store included clothing, winter wear, shoes, toiletries, diapers, and more. “Thanks for helping to make this Thanksgiving special for those in need within our community,” said Luke Weese, City Center Church.
