Why are we doing this?
With the health crisis and restrictions on gathering together in person, we are not able to follow our tradition of delivering food and other items to our neighbors-in-need to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. Transform Burien is set up to provide assistance while maintaining social distancing and other health requirements. Our NJHS and 8th graders are joining with them safely to continue in the spirit of the holiday and help our neighbors in need.
