Hi Moxie Moms!

I’m really excited about November! Aside from the time we’ll spend with family this season, there’s also new partners to celebrate, plenty of shopping, social fun, and opportunities to serve others. That pretty much reflects what Thanksgiving is all about, right?

Happy Turkey Day and enjoy the savvy savings!

Moxie Adventures with Fabio Tours

We’ve teamed up and put together a women’s only 7-day adventure in Tuscany. Escape to the Italian countryside for some much-deserved R&R—gourmet meals, private cooking classes, great wine, unforgettable cycling, and laughter with friends old and new.

ENJOY: The real focus is on the food and wine! You’ll enjoy fresh, locally-sourced Italian meals prepared by Chef Fabio plus three hands-on cooking classes during the week.

DISCOVER:
Each day, you’ll have the option to bicycle between 25-40 miles a day (rent a road bike or an e-bike) along quiet roads with unparalleled vistas and gourmet picnics at scenic destinations and historic castles.

IMMERSE: With Fabio as your guide, you’ll experience a local’s view of Italy –caffè in quaint villages, vino rosso in sprawling vineyards, and a private dinner with a local wine maker.

RELAX: Our group will stay in a luxurious private villa for the whole week, complete with private rooms and bathrooms, outdoor dining, a lounge pool and scenic, countryside views. But don’t worry, we’ll get out! Lunch at private wineries, dinner in historic Siena, and more.

Welcome to the 15th Year of the Thanksgiving Project

Created in 2003, the Thanksgiving Project started with the idea that people who are working to make a better life for their families need more support at Thanksgiving. 

The success of the Thanksgiving Project is measured both by the number of families fed and the satisfaction of those involved in this project. Recipients are participants in the Family Self-Sufficiency Program as well as women and children in the Safehouse Transitional Program.

If you would like to be a donor, you will be matched with a family that is participating in FSS or the Safehouse Transitional Program and will provide you with the ages of the children in the family so that you can buy age appropriate food.

Drop off Dates at the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Office:
2685-A Mapleton Avenue Boulder

Wednesday Nov. 8th 12-5:00 p.m.
Monday Nov. 13th 8-6:00 p.m.
