Happy Thanksgiving from Calvary!

With the holidays right around the corner, many of us are reflecting on the things we are thankful for at this time of year. On Thanksgiving here at Calvary, we are always grateful for the fantastic volunteers who will provide holiday meals for women at our programs.

This week, we took the time to interview some of Calvary’s staff to see what else they were thankful for this year. Here’s what they had to say:

“I am thankful for the many people who have made Calvary’s Good Hope Road project possible.” – Kris, Executive Director

“I am thankful for working with such intelligent, dedicated and hardworking colleagues but I am also thankful for a couple days off!” – Patricia, Bookkeeper

“I am thankful for my health and my family’s.” – Janet, Case Manager

“Family.” – Michelle, Program Manager

“I’m thankful for my life of purpose.” – Robin, Program Director

“Time spent with family.” – Catherine, Operations Director

“I am thankful that I have been so busy this year! It means that I’ve been passionate about so many things, and that maybe I’ve been doing one of them right!” – Kelly, Program Manager

“I’m extremely thankful for such a loving and supportive family.” – Whitney, Program Manager

“I am grateful for my family and how much they make me laugh every day.” – Heather, Development Director

“I’m thankful for my two nephews.” – Lisa, Grant Writer

Please share in the comments what YOU are thankful for this season!
