The Gift of Thanksgiving

On Tuesday, November 25, the Intrepid Museum’s employees and volunteers had the chance to give thanks for all the good things in our lives by sharing some of that good with others, inviting families who are homeless to join us for a night we won’t soon forget. 

The Intrepid Museum, in partnership with the New York City Department of Homeless Services (DHS), hosted its annual Gift of Thanksgiving celebration. This night of education and entertainment was held exclusively for families from all five boroughs that are currently living in transitional housing. The goal was to give those families (particularly the children) a nice evening in a safe and fun environment. When families arrived at the Museum, they received a tour of the former USS Intrepid and the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home to the space shuttle Enterprise, and saw a show in the Allison & Howard Lutnick Theater. 

CxRA served a delicious Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. Party Rental Ltd. and Craig Kiely & Darryn Murphy Designs used their talents to make our Exploreum Interactive Hall festive and inviting. Read More
