This is the time of year where everyone pauses to give thanks for the year's good fortune. Over this long weekend we will have time to spend with our family and friends and enjoy a good meal, but we must not forget those who are less fortunate.
At Connecticut Basement Systems, owner Larry Janesky has an annual tradition of giving a turkey to every employee as a way to start the Thanksgiving season. Every year we order a few extra turkeys to be able to share with local food banks and shelters to help the needy in our area. This year we were made aware that the Bridgeport Rescue Mission, a local mission to help those down on their luck, was substantially low on turkeys to help families in need. Many employees donated their holiday turkeys to share with others.
In total, Basement Systems donated over 30 turkeys! Connecticut employees put thankful hearts into action and helped make this Thanksgiving memorable for over 30 families in our area.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
