November 21, 2022 – Bridgeport, CT – This Thanksgiving will be more joyful for many Bridgeport families from the Optimus Heath Care Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive, which was held on Monday at the Optimus’ Headquarters.
This food drive marks the 15th year that Bridgeport Landing Development (BLD), the developers of Steelpointe Harbor, have partnered with Optimus Health Care for this tradition of providing the East Side & East End communities with Thanksgiving meals. This distribution was set-up for clients of Optimus Health Care, the Bridgeport Eisenhower Senior Center, and East End Food Pantry.
Through generous donations from Steelpointe Harbor developer, Robert Christoph Jr., Optimus was able to supply over 100 meals again this year. “We look forward to this Thanksgiving Meal distribution as it is an important holiday in my family. There is something special about sharing a meal with your loved ones,” mentioned Christoph Jr. “We do this each year with Optimus because we want to make sure our community gets to enjoy time with their family, no matter what their current situation might be.”
Bob Christoph Jr. and Steve Tyliszczak of BLD were on site with the Optimus team to hand out the turkey breasts, canned goods, and many other sides or desserts to Optimus’ clients after delivering meals directly to the Senior Center. Along with the Optimus distribution, folks at the East End Food Pantry handed out Steelpointe contributed turkeys to their community.
Through these partnerships, BLD is happy to help the East Side & East End communities thrive and continue to grow. As the Christophs say, “The only way Bridgeport Landing Development can be successful is if we make sure our neighbors are also at their best. We are all here together.”
