The Holidays are here. It’s a tradition that most families look forward to every year. That moment that the family is gathered together eating a meal. Some families have pre-meal and post-meal traditions. 2020 brings a challenge to most traditions. It may be that some of them are cancelled, or the number of people at the dinner table will be greatly reduced. But the one thing that should stay is the tradition of being thankful for what we have.
Here at Pernet, one tradition that will stay is providing Thanksgiving meals for families and holiday gifts for children. The Little Sisters of the Assumption who started the work we do at Pernet 65 years ago sought to support the disadvantaged families and to revitalize the spirit of those degraded by poverty. Today that work continues and the pandemic makes it even more urgent. We are pleased o be able to provide 250 families in our community with holiday meals this year.
