The Kroger family of companies, presented Miracle on Long Street, a gift card donation of $300 to support our 3rd Annual Thanksgiving Dinner, being held for every family that has a student enrolled at Beatty Park Elementary School in Columbus, Ohio.
This year's tradition was enhanced due to the generosity of organizations such as Kroger. Just because the pandemic is in full swing and many other areas of life have come to a standstill; Miracle on Long Street could not imagine these wonderful and deserving children being deprived of this holiday tradition. Our solution was to put together a Thanksgiving Dinner; complete with all the trimmings for the entire families of Beatty Park. Our menu includes Turkey, Dressing, Gravy, Green Beans, Sweet Potatoes, Cranberry Sauce, and Rolls. This meal will be available for pick up at the school in time to be prepared at home for Thanksgiving.
Thank you Kroger for your commitment to our communities and the work of Miracle on Long Street.
