Usually the demand for assistance is greatest around Christmas time. This is when most families are trying to provide food, gifts, and a joyous time for their families and children. Oftentimes there is also the ongoing struggle with trying to provide for your family, and pay your regular monthly bills.
The purpose of our annual Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets giveaway program, is to provide groceries and meals to the less fortunate, with a focus on families with children and seniors, however anyone that is struggling can sign-up for assistance. Baskets of food are passed out to those in need or households that are facing a short term financial emergency.
Our goal is to attempt to facilitate enjoyment of Thanksgiving and Christmas by low-income community residents through distribution of food baskets which usually contain a ham, turkey or other meat and all of the trimmings for a Thanksgiving dinner.
