The Phoenix House Academy at Lake View Terrace hosts several festive events for residents and their families throughout the holiday season, from Thanksgiving until New Year’s Day.
Prior to Thanksgiving, our resident Community Service Crew held a Food Drive and fundraisers in order to provide complete Thanksgiving meals to 11 families in need. Our own Thanksgiving festivities included a banquet-style dinner and dessert social.
Our annual Tree Trimming Ceremony on December 5 was a tremendous success. The celebration included decorating, refreshments, a performance by the Victory Outreach Choir, a client presentation about the many different holiday traditions, and culminated in a beautiful tree lighting ceremony.
Phoenix House Academy at Lake View Terrace is looking forward to hosting the following activities in the next few weeks:
- Tamale Day on Sunday, December 12th
- Family Tea Gift Wrap Event on Sunday, December 19th
- Christmas Extravaganza on Sunday, December 19th
- Individual unit celebrations and family visits on Christmas Day
- New Year’s Eve treats and movie marathon
- New Year’s Day family visits and celebration
For extra holiday cheer, we are also hosting holiday baking days and various outings throughout the season. Our clients will enjoy trips to the movies, ice skating, bowling, and roller skating. They are also excited to lend a hand in various community service projects – the spirit of giving is alive and well among our students!
