Calling All Turkeys – We need You!!
Please see Thanksgiving F.A.Q.
It’s that time of year again! Once again, we are preparing for our annual holiday program and we project that we will need to distribute approximately 1,600 turkeyt and complete dinners.
We need your help!!
This program is made possible by all the individuals and families, companies, houses of worship, civic groups, schools and youth groups who spread goodwill and give thanks by hosting food drives, fundraisers and donating food, funds and gift cards so we can ALL have a reason to celebrate the holiday.

In addition to the main course, we provide each family with other food items needed to make a holiday dinner. Below is a list of items currently needed to prepare the Thanksgiving bags:
