Preparing Thanksgiving packages for the needy

Thanksgiving is a perfect time to stop for a moment once a year and remember to give thanks. It's a time to be grateful for one's health, family, friends and having food on the table.

A.O.K. member, Ilene Mann, with the social service organization Wellness, Redemption & Rehabilitation Program (WRRP) will be hosting "Turkey's in the Desert."

WRRP, along with their many supporters will be providing a Thanksgiving meal to approximately 300 needy families from two Las Vegas area schools: Whitney Elementary and Ruby Thomas Elementary.

WRRP, believes, as we all do, that no family should be prevented by economic circumstances from coming together on Thanksgiving Day to share a meal and the hope of a better life in the Land of Opportunity.


Tuesday, November 20Th @ 8:00am A.O.K. will hook up with Ilene at Ruby Thomas Elementary School. We will be putting together makings of a Thanksgiving feast! We'll fill bags of all the "fillings" to make for a very festive holiday. Turkey, stuffing, cranberries, cornbread, potatoes,veggies and pie...oh my!

We'll even be putting a little treat from Toys 4 Smiles in each bag.

Volunteer time is roughly 2 hours.

Ilene Mann will be your "go-to" person today. Have Fun!

Please, RSVP with dignity.

Thank you,

    We at WRRP just wanted to send a special thank you to all our A.O.K volunteers that helped with "Turkeys In The Desert" at both Whitney Elementary on Monday and Ruby Thomas on Tuesday. Everything went well and see the link from Ch.8 news.
