Truly a Day for Sharing & Appreciation -
and to help brighten the holidays for
families of veterans
Thursday, November 22
Hansell Hall, Bensalem
While the nation revisits its humble beginnings with the annual Thanksgiving Day, the meaning of the holiday rings most true for those who have almost lost it all and managed to earn it back.

Gratitude Day is Livengrin's traditional forum for people in recovery from alcohol or drugs to express their feelings about what it's like to have taken back management of their lives. Hundreds come from all over the region to meet old friends and counselors, and line up at the "open mic" to share a few minutes of their story. It is truly the most meaningful and heart-rending morning of our year.

You can share or just listen and reflect. The free event (no RSVP necessary) is on Thursday, November 22, in Hansell Hall on the Bensalem campus. (Please - no smoking, no pets on campus!)
Livengrin teams with veterans' group for Food Drive
Bring a non-perishable food item to Livengrin when you attend Gratitude Day, November 22. (You can also drop off a donation at any Livengrin location anytime before December 12 - inquire at the Reception or Admissions windows.) These donations from alumni, friends and employees brighten the holiday outlook for more than 350 veterans' families.

Our partner in this effort is Veterans Affairs of Bucks County, who will add our contributions to many others to help make the December holidays a bit more merry - especially during the recent economic crunch - for vets and their families.  Add something to the food box - it's a small thing we can all do to show our support.
