Thanksgiving Donations

Thanks to the support of our generous community members, in 2023 we distributed 593 Fixin’s for the Feast bags to local people in need so that they could enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner. Fixin’s for the Feast bags are filled with all the Thanksgiving fixin’s to help our neighbors in need. Each Thanksgiving, clients enjoy a pre-packed bag of all the fixin’s along with a grocery store gift card for additions to their feast!

Food Drives

Food Drives are a great way to help stock our shelves! Items collected help provide the food, toiletries and household cleaning supplies that our clients need. Food drives are easy to organize and are a fun way to pull a company, congregation, school group, or any group together to help make a difference in our community.
