On Saturday, November 21st, Achieve Academy once again took part in OperationCranberry Sauce
, an annual event supported by local community groups which has been providing Thanksgiving meals for families in the Bay Area for nearly a decade.
Achieve families joined with the families of Patten Academy, Noel Gallo, Alameda County Citizens Police Academy and other community organizations to distribute over 300 turkeys to Fruitvale families and to give thanks and enjoy a hot meal with the warmth of good company. In addition, Achieve families raised about $500 selling homemade papusas to support classroom field trips!
Operation Cranberry is one of many similar community events in which Achieve takes part, both giving and receiving holiday blessings. Thanks again to the whole team of organizers behind this one as we look forward to many more holiday cheers!
