Today is International Thank You Day!

The word ‘thank’ is believed to have originated between c.450 and c.1100. The Old English noun meant “thought.” Its meaning progression was documented by the “Oxford English Dictionary,” and it became “favorable thought or feeling, goodwill.” It evolved further into “kindly thought or feeling entertained towards anyone for favor or services” by the Middle Ages.

We are so thankful not only today but everyday for our amazing volunteers, our staff and leaders, our community business partners, and to all who donate. We could not do this very important work without the support and generosity of our community. THANK YOU! 💙
