Thanksgiving food distribution
Thanksgiving is a holiday built around gathering family at the dinner table, giving thanks and chowing down. To help with this holiday tradition, St. Vincent de Paul gives out Thanksgiving food baskets, which include a turkey, all of the traditional side items, desserts and everything needed to create a great meal. More than 1,300 dinners are distributed each year to neighbors who start lining up the night before. There’s music playing, drinks and donuts served, dancing. It’s like tailgating for turkeys.
How you can help
Volunteers are needed to put together food bags, help with check-in, distribute warm drinks and donuts to those waiting in line, and assist neighbors in need with carrying their food items back to their cars. Let us know if you would like to volunteer by registering online here.
