YES Communities Donated Thanksgiving Meals to Resident Families Across Western Michigan

Denver, Colorado, Nov. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Every year YES Communities hosts community events to provide residents with a sense of belonging and the opportunity to get to know others that share their common interests.

In celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday, YES Communities across western Michigan hosted community meals and provided catered giveaways to residents.

Residents at Ferrand Estates entered to win a free Thanksgiving family feast by submitting a favorite recipe.  All entries will be compiled into a recipe book that will be distributed to the residents.

“We do these types of events year-round and not just for Thanksgiving. It helps create a family atmosphere when neighbors get to know one another personally,” said Tara Blakita, Region Field Manager at YES. “It’s awesome to see residents in our communities coming together to celebrate.
