Our annual Thanksgiving drive is here and it is the perfect way to get into the giving spirit. You and your family, organization, or business can donate non-perishable food items for our Thanksgiving Meal Drive to a family in need. We are working to put together meals for 350+ families this year!
The holidays can be a very difficult time for our clients, especially this year, as many families may be still feeling the effects of the pandemic, while simultaneously experiencing the impacts of domestic violence and sexual assault. It is important for us to not only be able to empower our clients so that they may have a memorable holiday with their family, but also to make sure that they have full bellies.
We’ve already begun collecting canned goods and non-perishable food items for Thanksgiving drive, as well as $20 gift cards and reusable shopping bags, but we need your help! Meal kits are assembled with the help of our amazing volunteers and include non-perishable food items such as:
- boxed mashed potatoes,
- gravy packets, stuffing,
- cornbread mix,
- canned veggies,
- pie filling,
- pie crusts, rice,
- mac and cheese,
- and peanut butter and jelly.
Since we are unable to provide perishable items such as fresh veggies or a main-course protein, we collect $20 gift cards to allow the families a choice in the type of protein they provide for their families on Thanksgiving.
Join us as we make sure every family has food on their table this Thanksgiving by registering to donate at dcfof.org/thanksgiving or shop online and ship items to us directly through our Amazon Wishlist here.
