The White House’s First 4th of July Celebration Happened In 1801

The first time The White House formally celebrated July 4th was in 1801, according to The White House Historical Association. Thomas Jefferson was President and he threw a festival complete with horse races, parades, and music. The White House will continue the celebratory tradition in 2021 with July 4th festivities on the South Lawn for military families and essential workers, according to CNN.

July 4th is typically celebrated with a flurry of patriotism on full display across America each year — fireworks, barbecues, parades — and red, white, and, blue everything — marks the occasion. But aside from all of the fun pomp and circumstance, there are plenty of days after 4th of July that many hungry people really need a meal!

You CAN help so step up and let's make a meal (any number of meals work) or make a Donation to help the ones in need.

When people help people, CHANGE HAPPENS!
