Tag Archives: Thanksgiving 2018
Growing up in Westport, Josh Torve enjoyed many New England Thanksgivings.
He graduated from Staples High School in 2002, and now lives in South Florida. But — surrounded by sun and palm trees — the spirit of the holiday lives on.
Josh understands how privileged he was to grow up here. Inspired by the generosity of people and businesses in his hometown, this year he and his fellow partners at Gryndhouse — a Miami-based music and entertainment company — organized a turkey drive.
Last weekend, they distributed 100 turkeys to folks in need. To add to the fun, they organized games and activities for kids.
That’s not all Josh does. For 3 years, he’s worked with a local gym to distribute book bags at the start of school.
“As parents, we worry how our kids develop as they navigate their way to adulthood,” says his mom, longtime resident Denise Torve.
“It’s so gratifying when they choose the right path. Westport has a lot to do with that. Happy Thanksgiving — to ‘06880,’ and our wonderful town!”
