In 1986, a small group of dedicated volunteers decided to make a differnce. They got together and made Thanksgiving meals for their neighbors in Greensboro and High Point. They believed that this holiday, more than any other should be about sharing out of our abundant gratefulness for all that we have, and that no one should be hungry.
Today, that celebration has grown to feed over 120,000 meals, and has involved thousands of volunteers. A Simple Gesture is pleased to take the lead on this celebration and continue the wonderful legacy of Thanks for Giving. In 2019, we are partnering with Guilford County Schools to provide meals to Hairston Middle School and Hunter Elementary. We are hoping to add more schools in years to come!
