Operation Free Holiday Ham–A Success!

November 20, 2012

As we prepare for a Thanksgiving feast with family running around town trying to find that last can of cranberry sauce or picking up the \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’heavenly\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’ ham, we often forget what the holidays are about. Giving \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’thanks\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’ for what you have been given is a common reason for the season, but what about helping out your fellow man?\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\nOperation Homefront never loses sight of this very goal; in fact, their mission statement reads: \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”…provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\” Nearly 130 families right here in Annapolis know of this NPO\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s giving nature first hand.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\nOn Sunday, November 18, Lincoln Military Housing partnered with Operation Homefront DC Metro to provide our military families with a free holiday ham for their Thanksgiving Dinner. Operation Homefront provided the 7.5-11 pound hams for our residents and all active duty military members alike. Lincoln Military provided refreshments, music, prize drawings, and holiday scrap booking gifts to all those who stopped by.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\nThis was a very well attended open house event located at our own housing office where we were able to serve over 120 families with a free ham this year. Like the saying goes, \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’tis the season for giving\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\” and, boy oh boy, did OH & LMH give! We hope to do more events like these in the future, so stay tuned.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\nHere are a few of the pictures we captured during the event:\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"
