Last Friday Steve, Sommer, and Kai had the pleasure of returning to the Families Forward Food Pantry to once again join in preparing and distributing Thanksgiving Meals. Their time was spent sorting and prepping food for distribution, preparing group meal pickups for schools, and loading cars full of all the trimmings necessary for a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. The distributions on Friday and Saturday were expected to feed over 700 Orange County families, and the entire TLG team feels blessed for the opportunity to be a part of such a great cause!
Families Forward is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1984 and is dedicated to providing supported housing programs for families in crisis. The comprehensive array of services offered at Families Forward empowers families to regain stability and self-sufficiency. Their homeless prevention services include career coaching, life-skills education, and food assistance. These services are supplemented by their rigorous Transitional Housing Program, which has resulted in more than 4 out of 5 families successfully transitioning from crisis to financial stability, giving their children a stable home to help them succeed in school.

The whole firm is looking forward to spending more time throughout the Holiday Season volunteering our time with Families Forward.
