Since it is #GivingTuesday I wanted to reflect back on what an amazing job a young girl in our community did this month to give back to others this Thanksgiving.
10 year old, Lana Moreno has a heart of gold and held her 2nd annual Give A Gobble Food Drive on Saturday, November 11th at the AMVets Post 48 in Ronkonkoma.
Lana Moreno started Lana’s World Hunger Dream at 8 years old in August of 2015 because she wanted to help people in need of food on Long Island. Lana has been collecting donations, shopping for food, donating items, running food drives and participating in community events for the past 2+ years. Last year the “Give a Gobble Food Drive” was a huge success and 117 Turkeys and trimmings were collected to donate to the Lighthouse Mission of Bellport. Lana was so grateful and excited with that number but, we knew she could top it and SHE DID!
The day after Thanksgiving is full of relaxation, shopping, and lots and lots of leftovers! My fridge is filled to the brim with leftover turkey, stuffing, potatoes, all that good stuff. Does anyone else plan how much food they are going to cook to make sure there are plenty of leftovers to go around?
Lunch the day after Thanksgiving was always my favorite! I would make a big open faced turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, turkey, and whatever else looked like it would be tasty on there.
Thanksgiving is a day to enjoy all the blessings in our lives! I have to say we are so blessed to have such amazing family and friends in our lives and we always look forward to reflecting back on the year and giving thanks!
There are so many great toys this Holiday season and we have put together a list of our favorites.
We have incorporated toys into this list that we have actually played with and recommend for the child in your life. My family and I feel these toys deserve to be on the list since they are fun and creative!
