On Saturday, November 18, more than 650 Harlem Heights residents gathered at The Heights Center for a Community Celebration of Thanks hosted by The Heights Foundation/The Heights Center. Residents enjoyed a meal from Bubba’s Roadhouse & Saloon, along with fellowship, games, and entertainment by kids from The Heights Center programs. Families were given a turkey and Publix gift card so they could prepare a meal together in their homes on Thanksgiving.
This is the second year The Heights Foundation/The Heights Center has hosted the event. Last year, many families in the community were without kitchens after the devastation of Hurricane Ian.
