Nominate Your Family Member for a Special Thanksgiving Meal
I’m sure we all have people in our lives, whether it be family members or friends, who cannot take the day off for the holidays & regularly have to miss the big Thanksgiving meal with others. Whether it be police officers, fire fighters, nurses & doctors, store cashiers (working the holiday to save us money on the big sales), waiters, gas attendants, you name it. There are those who just do not have that luxury of taking the day off as their job is dependent on someone always being there to serve others in their communities.
How often do we say “thank you” to them – for sacrificing holiday time to serve others & keep our community strong? We often can take that holiday time for granted & forget that there are those who do make those sacrifices to serve others on the days when everyone else is relaxing & having fun. La Brea Bakery wants to make sure that the people that work on Thanksgiving are not forgotten and that we thank them for their time & serving all of us. So, La Brea Bakery is hosting a special contest for those unsung heroes who miss Thanksgiving every year.
Watch this video to find out more about this contest & see the details below on how to nominate someone you know & love!
If you’re new to La Brea Bakery, they have cafe locations in southern CA (they have a cafe at Downtown Disney) & airport locations around the country. However, I was surprised to learn that La Brea Bakery is the leading artisan bread maker in the United States, and their products are sold in 7,000-7,500 retail outlets and store chains nationwide. Here in the Northwest, they sell their bread products in Safeway & Fred Meyer stores near me.
