Great ThanksGiving Project is an opportunity for our community to come together and demonstrate what Thanksgiving is all about—showing gratitude for our many blessings by serving those in need. — Chief Executive Officer Frank Williams
With the faithful support of corporate partners, Bridgeport Rescue Mission is preparing to provide 15,000 winter coats and 3,200 Thanksgiving turkeys and fixings bags for local low-income families and individuals at their annual Great ThanksGiving Project.
Great ThanksGiving Project distribution will take place November 20 - 26 at Webster Bank Arena, 600 Main Street, Bridgeport, from 12:30pm to 3pm daily (except Sunday). The Mission also plans to serve thousands of holiday meals to residents and guests through their Dining Room and Mobile Kitchens.
Chief Executive Officer Frank Williams explains, “With generous support from corporate partners, thousands of men, women, and children in Coastal Connecticut will receive Thanksgiving meals and winter coats to prepare for the cold months ahead.” The Mission wishes to thank:
Allstate, Anholt Services, Anthem, Arbour Lane Capital, Barcelona, bartaco,
Bizmark, CXLoyalty, Lincoln Healthcare Leadership, Northeast Private Client Group,
Penske, People’s United Bank, alphabroder|Prime, R.D. Scinto, Reed Exhibitions,
Splash Car Wash, Webster Bank, Wells Fargo & White Rose Home Healthcare
Great ThanksGiving Project corporate partners have supported the outreach for many years. Beyond financial support, they provide teams of enthusiastic employees to help pack Thanksgiving fixings bags and distribute coats in the Mission’s Bridgeport and South Norwalk distribution areas. “It’s our largest outreach of the year, helping thousands of neighbors,” Williams says, “and it’s only possible because of our corporate partners.”
