    Every fall, thousands of families struggle to keep food on the table. Thanksgiving week can be even more financially stressful when students are home from school for more than just the holiday meal.  Through participation in the annual Thanks for Giving food drive, our generous community captures the true spirit of Thanksgiving and provides families with the ability to create holiday traditions in the comfort of their own home.


    Sample Items Needed

     $15 gift certificate from a local grocer for a turkey

    o Dressing Mix /Gravy

    o Cranberry Sauce

    o Canned or instant potatoes (sweet or white)

    o Canned green/yellow vegetables

    o Non-refrigerated pie shell and pumpkin pie mix

    o Dried or canned milk

    o Roasting Pan

    In addition to these items, we also need the following to help families through the rest of the holiday while kids are home from school:

    o Dried beans

    o Peanut Butter

    o Canned meat, tuna, or ham

    o Rice, pasta, or cereal

    o Soup
