Each Thanksgiving Season CCO staff put up the Gratitude Tree. Shelter guests are welcome to fill a leaf with something they are grateful for. It is encouraging and humbling to see the thought that goes into such an uplifting project. You will find many of the gratitude leaves in the gallery below. What are you grateful for?
“I am thankful for everything I have. I’m thankful for my family.”
“We are thankful for… Joy, God, Family, Life, Love, Happiness, Another Day, Another Year, for Oxygen, for me, and for you! Blessings!”
“Happy Thanksgiving! I am blessed to have a loving family! I am thankful for my friends, neighbors, and church family. I pray that Christ will give you Peace, Joy, Hope, Faith, Kindness, and Understanding!”
