Gratitude

Sara Osaba, a ONE'r, a mother, a neighbor, a participant, and also the coordinator of the "We All Belong" AmeriCorp program has jumped on board with the Thankful That Project. It's a perfect match -- the "We All Belong" national service program is dedicated to making Burlington a more welcoming place for all to call home. The initiative is primarily tailored to reach the school community and those most affected by poverty. Tonight we'll break bread with Old North End residents and gather more stories of gratitude.

New messages are coming in...

"I'm thankful that I teach the children in the neighborhood that I live in."

"We are thankful that we have found such an inclusive and giving community, bursting with hope and creativity at Lawrence Barnes School - right in our own neighborhood!"
