Oakton High School: Thankful for Best Buddies
As Thanksgiving approaches and I consider what I’m most thankful for, Best Buddies stands out in my mind. From the strong one-on-one connection that I share with my buddy Caitlin, to the bonds I share with all of Oakton’s buddies, the friendships I’ve gained through this club have completely changed my life.
Best Buddies gives me countless smiles, laughs, and amazing memories; it touches my heart every day. This month, as Oakton Best Buddies members are reminded of the things that we are most thankful for, we also take time to think about those in our community who aren’t as fortunate as we are.
Every November we gather to celebrate friendship and pack meals at a local homeless shelter. Our chapter looks forward to giving back and providing meals to those who need them, all while sharing time with those who mean so much to us.
