Thanksgiving is a stressful holiday. Here are some ideas on how to make it easier on your residents.

Wasn’t it just Halloween? How is Thanksgiving next week already? Thanksgiving is one of the most stressful holidays. People have to cook, clean and travel to see their families.
So here are some ideas to lend a hand to make Thanksgiving easier for your residents, and possibly attract some future residents because of all the good will you’ll be spreading.
Do a last-minute group food order for your residents. No matter how much you plan for your Thanksgiving feast, there’s always going to be something you forget to buy, and it’s usually something basic. So set up a grocery sign-up sheet, with a specific day and time you’re going to order and it will be delivered, and post flyers all over your building or on your Facebook page, etc. (You’ll still probably get stragglers, but this should curtail it a little.) People could add what they need to the list, and you could collect money from them for what they’re ordering. Have the groceries delivered to the lobby a day or two before Thanksgiving. And, if you have any unclaimed items, you can use it in your community’s communal kitchen if you have one. Or, better yet, you can donate it to a homeless shelter.
