Over 30 years ago, a dedicated band of volunteers has served up a complete Thanksgiving dinner—from turkey and mashed potatoes to pumpkin pie – for the city’s homeless, hungry, homebound, and elderly poor; over 4,000 meals each year. To date, the Thanksgiving Fund has made it possible to feed more than 85,000 people!
More than 300 volunteers help prep, package, serve and deliver the meals. But of course, it takes donations to make this happen, too. Every dollar counts. Roughly $5 will provide one meal. A simple, easy $5 donation will allow a hungry person in our community to enjoy a traditional holiday meal with all the trimmings — the kind of meal that most others enjoy. It’s easy to give—and every bit helps.
