Chicago Thanksgiving Meal Giveaway

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back held a successful Chicago Thanksgiving meal giveaway on November 23, 2021 at the Pullman Community Center. Together with our partners from the Chicago Police Department’s CAPS program and Jewel-Osco, we were able to distribute 1,000 frozen turkeys and side fixings just in time for the holiday.

In addition to helping families with their holiday meal, our Chicago Thanksgiving meal giveaway featured snacks and refreshments for everyone in attendance, as well as sports activities for the kids. Rumor has it that Lerner and Rowe Gives Back’s Glen Lerner dusted off his turf boots and showed off his soccer skills.

With each car that lined up, our hearts grew fuller because not only did we get to personally hand out bags stuffed with traditional Thanksgiving meal goodies, we were also on the receiving end of one of the most priceless gifts ever– beaming smiles full of happiness!

So, THANK YOU, Tucson, and all of our team members and volunteers who helped make this Thanksgiving an extra special holiday.

Another city, another fantastic day of giving back! We are extremely grateful for the good spirits and patience of those who attended our Phoenix Thanksgiving Meal Giveaway at the Phoenix Metro Auto Auction. This was our third giveaway for 2021 and our team couldn’t have been more excited to help local families prepare for the upcoming holiday.

Each of the 750 packages that we gave away was full of goodies to make a traditional Thanksgiving meal, as well as a bunch of love and goodwill from our team. The holidays are not the only time we give back, but they do give us another opportunity to reconnect with our neighbors and wish them well in a more personal way.

North Las Vegas Thanksgiving Meal Giveaway

North Las Vegas Thanksgiving Meal Giveaway

Our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back team was at it again! We held round two out of the five planned Thanksgiving Meal Giveaways for 2021 in North Las Vegas at Manuel Cortez Elementary School.

Along with our community partner with the Clark County School District Police (CCSPD), we passed out 1,000 frozen turkeys with side dishes; enough food for a family of six to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal together.

“Kevin and I really enjoyed serving together with our staff and the incredible officers of the CCSDPD to help 1,000 families enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal together. We love giving back into the communities as well as seeing so many smiling faces. It warms our hearts to consider that we are able to help families, who likely wouldn’t otherwise share a traditional Thanksgiving dinner together. This is our way of wishing Las Vegan’s a Happy Thanksgiving.” -Glen Lerner
