Thanksgiving Basket Program 2013

 

Once again, we are preparing for our annual holiday program.  We project that we will need to distribute approximately 1,600 complete dinners this year, with the first of the baskets being distributed NOVEMBER 1

We will begin accepting turkeys and hams on October 28.

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: 

Thanksgiving Food Needs List
Turkey, Turkey Breasts or Ham Canned vegetables (low-salt if possible)
Stuffing Hearty soups (low-salt if possible)
