Thanksgiving Baskets

We have a special opportunity to help families in our neighborhood by sharing what we have this Thanksgiving season. Over 50 families from Hunter Elementary School -- many live in our neighborhood -- need help providing a Thanksgiving meal for their family this year. It’s easy to help.

How to Help?
Cornbread, stuffing, cranberry sauce, dessert .... These are just a few things that make a Thanksgiving meal delicious.

Contribute a few of these items or build an entire meal. You decide. Let's see what we can do together!

See the items below to determine the TYPE OF FOOD and QUANTITY needed for an entire meal for a family of five.
