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.
