With Thanksgiving approaching very soon, Thursday November 27th to be exact, it’s time to start making preparations for food & family visits. Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks, spend time with family and eat some of the most soulful foods such as turkey, ham, stuffing (dressing), greens, mac & cheese, candied yams (sweet potatoes), corn bread and etc. Let us not forget the deserts such as sweet potato pies, all types of cakes, & etc. That was tasty just mentioning.
Although many families are prepping, there is so many families who are not fortunate to experience the joy of being with certain loved ones due to unfortunate circumstances or even don’t have the necessary means of preparing a lot of food during the holiday season. That is why we commend so many individuals who have taken the liberty to give back to others such as the Thanksgiving Family Blessing, which we previously wrote about. We came across two additional giveaways that will take place, Sunday, November 23rd and Monday, November 24th.
Sunday, November 23rd, One of Chicago’s favorite One Stop Shops, Exclusive 773 (857 W. 87th Street), will be giving away 2,000 turkeys from 2PM to 4PM.
