Holidays, community, and Facebook
Posted on 12/16/2015
The holiday season is in full swing at The Gathering Place. A tree is up and decorated in the dining room and other holiday accessories have appeared throughout the building. This year’s Feast & Festivity events have so far included Christmas caroling, a Hanukkah celebration, an ornament-making craft activity, and a talent show organized by our own Community Access Team.
Although there is a palpable spirit of celebration at The Gathering Place during this time of year, the holidays can be a difficult and emotionally vulnerable time for some of our members. Our goal at TGP over the holidays – aside from continuing to provide a safe refuge and our programs and services – is to enhance a sense of community and offer opportunities to come together to seek solace in the little things that often mean so much.
Keep up with our holiday celebrations by checking out our Facebook page where we are posting photos of the Feast & Festivity activities and thanking our fabulous volunteer groups.
