HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Thanksgiving is a special time to give thanks for our blessings but also for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. By helping provide and pack food for LA area families who might otherwise not enjoy a full Thanksgiving feast, you will fill bellies and give others another reason they too can be thankful.

DESCRIPTION

Help make this Thanksgiving tasty for LA families who might otherwise not have all the trimmings this holiday season. Help us fill bags for thousands of area families at this year's annual Thanksgiving Stuffing Event. Whether donating food items or packing the bags themselves (or both!), we want you to join in the delicious fun!


ITEMS NEEDED

If working the event, just bring yourself!

If you wish to donate, please bring any of the following items:

  • Green beans
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Stuffing mix
  • Canned yams
  • Cornbread mix
  • Gravy (mix or cans)
  • Grocery store gift cards (for turkeys)

*This year we hope to collect at least 2,000 of every item!


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Must be 15 to volunteer, unless accompanied by a parent.
