Foster youth, alums invited to virtual Thanksgiving gatherings

Foster youth, alums invited to virtual Thanksgiving gatherings

Since 2007, Ohio foster care youth (ages 14+), alumni and allies have been gathering each November to celebrate Thanksgiving Together. Due to COVID-19, this year’s celebration will take place virtually.

This year’s theme is “Recipes for Success” and will take place over four separate Zoom meetings:

  • Cooking Tips: Saturday, Nov. 14 at 11 a.m.
  • What No One Ever Told Me About Relationships: Sunday, Nov. 15 at 1 p.m.
  • College Survival Strategies: Saturday, Nov. 21 at 11 a.m.
  • What No One Ever Told Me About the Workplace: Sunday, Nov. 22 at 1 p.m.

Participants will be invited to share their goals for the future, their proudest accomplishments during this complicated year, and someone or something they are thankful for. They can even share a “virtual show and tell” of their dorm or first apartment.

Register here to receive the Zoom log-in information, which will be emailed closer to the events. (Registrants have the option of providing an address, as some may win gift cards based on a raffle.)
