Thanksgiving Carnival

Our seniors enjoyed a “Thanksgiving” Carnival this week full of fun and laughter.  Everyone tried their luck at playing fun carnival games and won prizes at each game.  Prizes included soup cans, juice bottles, taxable items such as paper towels, toilet paper, toothpaste, bath soap and laundry soap.  One of the popular games was the grocery game.  Customers tossed balls at grocery bags filled with groceries. If your ball made it into the bag you were able to choose a grocery item from that bag!  Customers filled up their goody bags throughout the morning with game prizes and door prizes.  Thank you to our staff, especially Michelle, who worked so hard at obtaining some wonderful door prizes from businesses in the community.  A big thank you also goes out to Mobile Meals of Toledo, Inc. staff who collected taxable items for our carnival all summer long.  Our clients LOVE the taxable items because these are items needed for a household but are not eligible to be purchased with food stamps. Everyone went home a winner!
