THANKSGIVING TURKEY DONATION UPDATE: We currently have only 29 turkeys and will need at least 140. Interesting in donating a turkey? Turkeys in the 12-15 pound range work well for families.

THANKSGIVING FIXINGS DONATIONS: Thanksgiving donations can include any of the following: canned corn, canned green beans, cranberry sauce, cream soup (chicken or mushroom), gravy, French fried onion rings, instant potatoes, and/or stuffing mix. Again, turkeys will be needed.

Donations can be made on Wednesday, November 15 during our regular hours. We will also be open on Saturday, November 18 from 12 Noon to 4 PM for turkey and dinner fixing donations.

Please stay safe and well!
