Organizations Bringing Thanksgiving to Everyone

The Bowery Mission

On Thursday, November 24, 2016, The Bowery Mission served Thanksgiving Day meals to more than 7,800 men, women, and children in all five boroughs of New York. At the Mission’s flagship location, over 650 volunteers prepared traditional turkey dinners and served over 1,700 guests in the Mission’s century-old chapel, with music and festive decorations for the holiday.

Over the course of the day, our volunteers worked hard to generously serve traditional Thanksgiving meals to our guests from 8 am to 7 pm.

On Thanksgiving Day alone, The Bowery Mission serves eight times as many meals as we do on an average day. Private donations from thousands of supporters make this all possible.

Meals on Wheels

The Walk to End Hunger is a family-friendly 5K fun walk presented by The Mosaic Company. Held on Thanksgiving morning in the Mall of America, it’s a great way to start your holiday off right – giving back before you give thanks!

Lighthouse Mission box trucks go out stocked with emergency food, clothes & other necessities. At each outdoor location, staff and volunteers unload and set up the boxes and bags of food and clothes. Each morning there is a brief volunteer orientation meeting.

 

Island Harvest

Fighting hunger is more than providing meals. At Island Harvest, we know that we also must fight the root causes that lead to hunger.
So, even as we provide needed food to people in need, we also provide support and referrals that help them to overcome the barriers that lead to food insecurity. We help Long Islanders to address educational and employment needs … and meet challenges in getting access to healthcare and leading healthy lives … and battle problems in finding or maintaining good housing.

Teen Boys Filmed Giving Duvet to Homeless Man and Tucking Him In

Millenials may get a bad rap for being the generation introduced to smartphones, but these three Polish teens are a perfect example of how youngsters are just as kind and compassionate as everyone else. Last December, Szymon, Wojtek, and Marcin were wandering down a street in Nysa – a city in southern Poland – when they a homeless man a blanket and tucked him in.

Three boys were praised by their city mayor after they were spotted on CCTV taking a duvet to a homeless man sleeping on a bench.

The trio of good Samaritans, Szymon, Wojtek, and Marcin, were rewarded by the city of Nysa, in Poland, for their kind act, each given a smartwatch as a thank you.

In the clip, the three boys are seen walking through the town center with a bag carrying the huge cover between them.

They approach the bench, stop, unload their gift and wrap it around the sleeping homeless man.

Joseph Badame’s Misfortune Leads to His Destiny: Saving Lives in Puerto Rico

What do you do when you have lost everything you have built in your life?  You give to those that have lost more.

Medford survivalist Joseph Badame with some of the many barrels of dried food and supplies he has accumulated over the years.

By Rebecca Everett | For NJ.com

The shelter Joseph Badame built and his accumulation of supplies — enough so that 100 people could live there — was Badame’s life’s work. He and his wife built the place, with its subterranean living area and lead-lined bomb shelter, along with outbuildings. For forty years, they filled them with everything they’d need, from coal furnaces and kerosene refrigerators to barrels of food and other supplies.

Mr. Badame lost his wife in 2019 and now he’s losing it all now, after the bank foreclosed on his property. “I’m losing this house,” he said, looking at the building from his driveway Monday. It’s a blow to a man who is still heartbroken over losing his wife. “This will never be a survival dwelling for Phyliss or myself.” But, he admits, his passion for creating the perfect shelter has diminished since his wife’s death, and there are few family members and friends left to worry about saving.

Badame decided that instead of selling the food at the sale, he would ship it all to Puerto Rico. It will feed people who desperately need it, even if it’s not the people they originally intended. “I’ve lost everything. My wife, my house, everything,” he said. “The last thing I was going to lose is the food. It was going to be trashed.”

Finding his purpose in getting the food and supplies to Puerto Rico has lifted his spirits. But on top of that, he also found a kind of adopted family. He moved the RV he’s living in into the yard of Barber and Martinez-Barber.

Plaque of Appreciation for Our Heroes

Hero Awareness for Good Samaritans

Scrolls of Hope is beginning an awareness program for our Good Samaritans and Heroes.  Have a digital Plaque of Appreciation created to express your gratitude.

These people of goodwill do not look for recognition. They toe the line without any thought to themselves. They are the good Samaritans who see a need and inherently fill it without any ulterior motive. They seldom receive credit for their actions and are usually anonymous to the masses. Their natural demeanor is structured around the golden rule and the virtues of man.

Every day is a good day to honor and remember the people who selflessly change our perspective, our lives and bring out the good in all of mankind.

Scrolls of Hope has developed a special way to show appreciation to the humanitarians in our lives. These are the caregivers, saviors, defenders, and educators.

  • Doctors and Nurses who tend to our well-being
  • Firefighters and Paramedics that save our lives
  • Soldiers that defend our country
  • Volunteers who see a need and fulfill it
  • Policemen that keep us safe
  • Teachers that broaden our minds
  • Courageous individuals that do the extraordinary

There are many heroes in our lives. Their sacrifices and actions make a significant difference to us all. We all want to send thanks to these humanitarians. Here is a place to let them know how much they are appreciated.
Send us your heroes. Tell us what they have done for you or our community. We will create a digital Plaque of Appreciation to honor them and their good deeds for free. To acknowledge and show gratitude for our everyday heroes, Scrolls of Hope will gratuitously share each Plaque of Appreciation through social media to be shared and enjoyed by all.

Tell us about your HERO and Scrolls of Hope will send you a Digital Plaque of Appreciation

Your hero will be posted on the Scrolls of Hope Facebook page, Twitter and on Pinterest. We will send you an email with links to each post.

 

Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Send a Genuine Plaque of Appreciation

Through Scrolls of Hope, you can send a memorable message in a bottle expressing your gratitude to someone that has made your life better. A copy of the message will also be placed in a beautiful Plaque of Appreciation to be displayed for years to come. Visit Scrolls of Hope and go to the Good Samaritan Page.

American’s come to the aid of those in need from recent hurricane

Areas affected by this current wrath:

  • Florida Keys – an estimated 25 percent of homes were demolished and an additional 65 percent were extensively damaged in the Florida Keys. At least two people have died, but it is unknown whether the storm was responsible.
  • Miami – Five-foot storm surges also sank and beached dozens of boats, and flooded the roads and buildings in some of the city’s most expensive districts like Brickell.
  • St. Augustine -Many roads are still blocked by debris and flooding—stalling emergency vehicles—and homes have collapsed and had their foundations eroded. At least one person died from a heart attack.
  • Marco Island – Many cell towers toppled over, 15 homes lost their roofs or suffered other serious damage.
  • Jacksonville – most severe flood since 1864, The 5-foot storm surges submerged park monuments and the roads resembled rivers. Fires and trees falling on homes caused numerous injuries. The situation in Jacksonville could become even more disastrous, as the water levels are expected to rise and fall in the coming days.
