OK, so really, I'm a big time geek! ( Well and pig lover of course ). I've posted lovely Thanksgiving pics all month, so here's a FUN one. Seriously though, have a FUN day! ENJOY whomever you are with, either in person or via the various phone/computer apps or just the phone. LOOK outside and SEE all of the cool things that are just happening in nature! ( We have squirrels playing in our yard ) EAT like you don't care about that diet you want to be on. DO something for yourself! Happy Thanksgiving!! ... See MoreSee Less
It's Over!! Thank you all SO much for all of your generousity! From donations, to sharing, to talking to others, it ALL counts. This was our biggest year ever! I'll post the final numbers later as soon as I get them all added up, but it's over 2500 families ( 15,000+ people ). Due to everyone working so hard we had extra turkeys and were able to send 6 to The Rise women/children's shelter AND the Ellettsville Fire Dept was able to get some and take some to our local Police! We especially want to Thanks Hoosier Hills Food Bank and First Choice Storage for loaning us their space ad helping us pack the Thanksgiving boxes! Hoosier Hills for storing and helping with a good chunk of food as well. It has been a hard year, but ths community was able to pull together, once again and make sure everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner. And finally a Shout out to our amazing team of volunteers here at the Pantry 279 for the many, many hours and labor put in to make this project work AND still feed everyone. HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL!!!! ... See MoreSee Less

The pic sums it up. We have been going 120% for 2 weeks now with Thanksgiving, BUT it is important to us that everyone get a Thanksgiving dinner! We are physically and mentally exhausted and Wednesday is our BIGGEST day AND we have a truck to unload. Please, please, if you can come help anytime from 11 - 6:30 on WED to help unload the truck and get people food before we close until Monday, come by and help even for a little bit.
