WestCMR Joins Annual Thanksgiving Adopt-a-Family Event to Benefit Local Families

WestCMR lends a few hands to help local families for ThanksgivingWestCMR joined Belleair Recreation Center, once again in their annual Thanksgiving Adopt-a-Family. This is an opportunity to allow underprivileged families in the local Belleair community, who normally wouldn’t have a Thanksgiving, to enjoy their holiday. This year, 40 families from local schools, Belleair Elementary School and Mildred Helms Elementary School received a full Thanksgiving meal and additional household items.

As a community partner always looking to make a difference, WestCMR was honored to join the Town of Bellair special events coordinator, Rachel Hobbs in Thanksgiving Adopt-A-Family.

“We are so grateful and thankful for such a big community outreach we have going on here, each year it surprises me even more how great this community is and how wonderfully we all come together.” – Rachel Hobbs
