In spite of the challenges of COVID-19, Thrive served 2100 meals

for the Christmas holiday, at three locations:

Edmonton Intercultural Centre, Fusion Fellowship and Refuge Mission Hall. Here is a play by

play of the event. Volunteers – actually they are not just a volunteer to us – VALUABLE – included security

outside, then Team Boardwalk with assembly line serving stations for everything to be served, while

maintaining social distancing. The meal started with a hot turkey dinner, then ham and turkey

sandwiches, mandarin orange, homemade bread pudding, Fat Franks cookies, Bon Ton gourmet

desserts, WoW Factory candy cane mousse cheesecake, hot cups of coffee and a huge gift bag.

the dinner was a huge success and we are grateful for monetary donations. Donors included Bon Ton

Bakery, The WoW Factory Desserts, Boardwalk Community Rentals, Millwoods Lions Breakfast

Club, Edmonton Jolly Fellows Lions, Edmonton Millwoods Lions.
