We are reminded, at this time of year, how blessed we are to live in Southern Oregon, this is just one small way to share our gratitude.”
The media and public are welcome to attend the event, Tuesday November 21st between 11 and 11:30am at City Life where the dinners are being delivered by members of the Builders Association of Southern Oregon.
Hayden Homes VP of Community Engagement, Deborah Flagan said, “When this opportunity was presented to us we immediately said, “YES” because of the many deserving families throughout Jackson County that would benefit from the Thanksgiving deliveries. We are honored to be able to assist in providing these families with a healthy and filling meal on Thanksgiving day.”
