Thanksgiving Food Drive 2020
Wow! 2020 has been a crazy year! This year we’ve seen our community come together helping strangers, neighbors, and family, like never before. It has been inspiring to watch our community in action. Joining to help family, neighbors, and even strangers like never before. There have been rough patches but we have all grown and learned how we can survive these times and how in this increasingly small world how even small generosities can make a big difference.
This year, we will once again to put our resources, experience, and energy into feeding 2000 families in our communities a traditional Thanksgiving meal.
We are starting preparations NOW. Sign-ups for boxes are open starting Sept. 1 and will run through Nov. 19 at 11:59pm. We rely on the kindness and good work of the members, organizations, and businesses of our community. If you would like to donate please click here. It is your generosity that makes Thanksgiving possible for many of our families. I can’t stress how important this program has become. Many of these families hadn’t had the ability to have a Thanksgiving Dinner together in their homes in years. It is always so inspiring and exciting to watch our community come together over this and rally, making what should be an impossible task, possible. A shining example for the rest of the country in brother/sisterhood and helping to care for each other. We at Pantry279, and the families who receive these baskets, are extremely grateful. Thank You!
Pick up days are Nov. 20, 3:00pm – 8:00pm and Nov. 21, 10:00pm – 5:00pm at Hoosier Hills Food Bank 2333 W Industrial Park Drive, Bloomington.
