Loveland Center Students Write 
Thanksgiving Poems



Students worked collectively to create written works in their Applied Academics Classes and came up with original and heartfelt poems. We hope you enjoy the following poem:


Giving Thanks


I am thankful for my parents.

They love me and help me.

I am thankful for my hands.

I can hold my friends hand, wipe a tear, or write my name.

I am thankful for my brain.

It helps me remember and learn new things.

I am thankful for my heart.

I have lots of love to give.

I am thankful for my ears.

I can enjoy music, laughter, and the words I love you.

I am grateful for my whole self.

I am awesome.


What is #GivingTuesday?


We have a day for giving thanks. We have another for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

Today, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. 


The Loveland Center has joined #GivingTuesday and hopes to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and help support programs to benefit Loveland Center students. 


Please join Loveland this #GivingTuesday to help spread the love and the message of giving around the world.The most meaningful gift we can give our children, loved ones, friends and neighbors is the commitment to work together to help build a better world for adults with developmental disabilities.
