Join us at for our annual Gratitude Gala on May 18th at Lone Hawk Farm from 5:30 pm – 8:30
pm for a Farm to Table experience like no other! Each year the Gratitude Gala raises thousands of dollars to provide grief services for who are going through a devastating loss.
We have a special night of community celebration, delicious Farm to Table food planned, and sharing our vision of what it means to transform grief to gratitude. This year we will be focusing heavily on community, which means we will not have an auction
Plus, we’ll be unveiling our newest GSN program: It Takes a Village: Meal Delivery Program.
GSN created “It Takes a Village: Meal Delivery Program” to ensure that our community can respond in a timely way to the tremendous need of nurturing its families in times of grief. The program supplies a multi-faceted, volunteer-based network of services to support a person’s most basic needs within the first six months to a year after a loss. By accepting these services, a family then has more time to focus on moving through their grief and tending to their own self-care. Emphasis is on community participation – working closely with local businesses to provide services and then training volunteers to interact with GSN members. “It Takes a Village” will be developed in phases, beginning with a meal delivery service. In the future, the program will be expanded to include other offerings such as childcare, housecleaning, grocery shopping and more.
A trained volunteer will be assigned to deliver the meal and then “sit” with the family – listening, witnessing and reflecting back to them what they are feeling. By offering this presence and authentic connection, a safe space is created to speak what is true, rather than holding feelings inside, pretending to be ok.
By attending this event, you are directly supporting the launch of this new and very important program for our community. Join us and become an agent of change for those in need.
