How to Donate a Thanksgiving Food Box or Make a Monetary Contribution

The 2019 Thanksgiving Food Box Project has Concluded – Thanks to the help from 2,500 donors and 900 volunteers we helped provide Thanksgiving dinner for almost 13,000 people this year! Thank you. Check back in Fall 2020 for next year’s info.

If you would like to provide a Thanksgiving food box, use the 2019 Thanksgiving Food Box Shopping List (CLICK HERE) to create your family’s food donation.  Deliver the box on Sunday, November 24, between 8:30 a.m. and noon to any one of the following:
