Gumbo and Gifts was a huge success! It was the best Thanksgiving I’ve had in my life! We laughed, we cried, we danced, we ate so much gumbo -most importantly we served with love love love and it was felt! I’m so grateful to have friends & family who love to serve and didn’t mind rolling up their sleeves on Thanksgiving day to benefit others in need.. I’m beyond grateful for Jamal owner of Central City Grocery, not only did he open his store on Thanksgiving to serve the less fortunate he also paid a few of his employees to come in, he had the DJ come and he supplied all of the beverages, tables and chairs.. When most businesses were running the homeless and hungry off Jamal opened his doors and his heart… I’m grateful to now call him my friend & I pray he is never in lack… I pray that for everyone who sowed their finances, time and their hearts into Divva & Friends; Gumbo and Gifts -it was a celebration like no other!
