I recently ran into Casey, a former Twin Oaks consumer. We caught up on life and she told me about her full time job and showed me pictures of her daughters. Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, our conversation naturally included holiday plans and recipes.
Then, Casey recounted her memories of Thanksgiving 2011. Two years ago, Casey and her family received a turkey and meal through our Thanksgiving Food Drive. Casey shared, “Our family went from having a dream life to worrying where our next meal was coming from. The turkey meal gave my family the ability to continue our holiday traditions and gave us hope that the next year would be better.”
If you’d like to give hope by donating to our Thanksgiving Turkey Drive, you can learn how here.

For every Brayden’s brand teddy bear that duck duck goose sells, Brayden’s Bears will donate a bear to a child in a Twin Oaks program! This is an ongoing project and you can visit duck duck goose at 702 Haddon Avenue in Collingswood to purchase a Brayden’s Bear for yourself and one will be donated to Twin Oaks!
Each handmade bear is super soft and each bear is unique.
As soon as the bears came in today, we snapped a few photos and sent them to their new, bear-y special homes right away. We know some happy kids who just received their new best friend!

THANK YOU to everyone who supported our Operation Fill-A-Backpack drive! It was a whirlwind of a week and by the end we handed out 790 backpacks to children in need. Without all the community support, we would not be able to help so many children. YOU gave a child the chance to start the school year with the tools and confidence needed to succeed!
TD Bank employees Paul D’Antonio and Eric Motson drop off
the donations they collected for our drive.
