This year, one of our neighbors at CRT Generations, Mr. Kerry Foster Sr. of Clark Street, and his family have decided to bless Generations residents with Thanksgiving essentials. Mr. Foster, a retired Hartford firefighter, alongside his family have been giving back to their community for several years. After losing their son, Kerry Foster Jr., some years ago, Mr. Foster and his family strive to keep their son’s spirit alive through their community work. During the holidays, the Foster’s typically give back in a major way by serving meals to local shelters & soup kitchens and providing clothes to the homeless and those in need.

However, due to COVID-19, their Thanksgiving tradition must be altered a bit this year! So, they decided to donate to the seniors closest to them at the CRT Generations campus. Mr. Foster and his family provided all our residents (seniors included) free turkeys and food baskets this week, just in time for the holiday!
