Marasco & Nesselbush Employees Provide Thanksgiving Cheer

Marasco & Nesselbush Employees Provide Thanksgiving Cheer

Recognizing that many of our clients and their families struggle to afford even the basics while they are disabled, the employees of Marasco & Nesselbush decided to assist six families with food support for Thanksgiving. We worked together to collect food and create six bountiful Thanksgiving baskets, which were awarded via raffle to six clients who entered our contest. All of our employees signed cards for the winners, and each basket also had a gift card for turkey or other fresh foods of the client’s choice. Employees presented the baskets to their clients during Thanksgiving week. Congratulations to everyone who won Thanksgiving dinner on us!
