Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. On Saturday, we held the annual Ward 5 turkey drive where we were able to deliver turkeys to more than 32 senior living facilities and 75 home bound seniors. A special thank you to all of the residents that volunteered their time to make this years turkey drive a success. On Monday, my staff and I volunteered at Food and Friends a local non profit here in Ward 5. Food and Friends mission is to improve the lives and health of people with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illnesses that limit their ability to provide nourishment for themselves.  If you have time to volunteer during the holiday season don't hesitate to reach out to Food and Friends.

Thank you for your support, have a wonderful holiday season. #OurWard5
