The property where I live is having a contest for the best decorated patio/front door for Thanksgiving. A prize will go to the best decorated. Kind of nice to get everyone to participate. They always do for Christmas but not too many decorate for Thanksgiving.
 
 
A free Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner for all residents if they bring at least one non-perishable canned food item for the needy. Everyone has a good time and the pantry for the less fortunate in our community is helped.
 
 
Thanksgiving Around the World
This is the second year we are hosting our Thanksgiving Around the World Party. Since we have such a diverse group of residents living in our building we decided to get everyone involved in this event. We supply the main course (Turkey) and the drinks and ask our residents to bring a dish from their culture to share. We had such a great turn out last year and are looking forward to hosting it again.
 
 
We have sent out flyers to our residents informing them of a food drive to help our neighbors who are hungry. When a resident comes in to our leasing office to donate Non-perishable food items their name will be entered into a drawing. The winner will win a $25.00 gift card to a local grocery store so they can purchase a turkey or items needed for their Thanksgiving DInner. All through the year and especially during the holidays we like to reach out to help those who are in need. The food will be donated to Hands of Hope/St.James Episcopal CHurch.
 
 
The property will but the turkey and ham and the Residents will bring a side, salad or dessert to share. This is the first time we have done something like this so we will see how it goes.
 
 
We have community business that donate Turkey's ,churches and community residents bring the sides. We have muiltple properties so some of the local churches provide transportation to outreach center that don't have transportation which is located right across the street fron our main office. Different volunteers such as police Department , health Department, community figures and many others come out on Thanksgiving Day to serve our guest. We serve from 12pm til 3pm .This is a time for those without family or friends , homeless, hungry, to have a since of family.

We are providing the ham and turkey along with wine and drinks. Residents are bringing sides and desserts. We already have sign ups for green bean casserole, sausage balls, banana pudding, cupcakes, dressing, broccoli casserole and more. We are turning our clubhous into a room full of festive tables with candle light and holiday decorations. It is going to be a great day of fellowship and fun with lots of yummy food too!!!
 
 
When I started working at The Verge, a student property, I inherited this event. We provided a turkey "Thanksgiving" dinner for our residents. The admission to this event was 2 cans of food. Thus Turkey Can-Can. We donated the food to a local food bank in Chapel Hill. We purchased turkey, gravy and stuffing from K & W Cafeteria and made mashed potatoes and green beans ourselves. This resident event has been held every year at The Verge for at least 6 or 7 years! Residents and staff love it and we give back to the community!
 
 
Several years ago when I was on-site we hosted a Thanksgiving Dinner at our property which was a high-end, largely 20/30 something demographic community. I have to admit, I didn't think it would go over that well...I was very wrong. It was packed and we received a tremendous amount of positive feedback. Because so many of our residents were young, business professionals and not from our city, many were not going to make it home for this family holiday. They were thrilled to be able to eat a feast in the comfortable company of friends. Our handful of senior residents also loved playing everyone's grandma. We hosted it the Thursday before Thanksgiving, cleared out our clubhouse, rented tables and chairs, provided the Turkey/dressing/gravy and table service. Residents brought a covered dish and for those who didn't cook, they brought the wine. So glad...
 
 
Last night we hosted a Thanksgiving Potluck and Bingo night. We at the property provided the Turkey and Ham and desert and we asked that everyone that came brought a side dish. It was a huge success! Everyone loved what everyone else brought, recipes were exchanged as well! We also had a bingo night after dinner. We did our event early as people as busy or out of town right before Thanksgiving.
