When friends and family get together for the holidays, there are those that can’t join the celebration because they are helping our community. Whether they are in the military, a first responder, media personnel or volunteer, these people give their all to help make our communities better.
La Brea Bakery, one of my favorite artisan bakers, is asking people to nominate their Thanksgiving Hero this Thanksgiving season and La Brea Bakery will deliver fully catered meals to 5 finalists across the nation on Thanksgiving. These Thanksgiving Heroes could be people who we know and love who regularly work on Thanksgiving serving everyone – whether it’s police, fire, medical personnel, even chefs and waiters. They sacrifice their time to help others and that, to me, is something we should commend them for!
I have so many friends who aren’t always able to celebrate the holidays with their loved ones so this is a campaign I wholeheartedly support. I have friends in so many different professions that require them to work on the holidays and either celebrations are postponed or they have to miss it entirely. I remember many many moons ago, Thanksgiving meals with my family had to be pushed back because I had to work that holiday. Now, when I do find that stores are open on the holidays, it makes me sad because people really should have the opportunity to be with their loved ones. If you see a first responder on the holiday, please take a second and thank them for their service. It really is a nice thing to do.
