Once a ForKids family, always a ForKids family...

Each year ForKids' donors provide food items to create baskets filled with all the ingredients of a delicious Thanksgiving meal so that our families will not have to experience the holiday without the feast! Come together with staff to assist in assembling these baskets and distributing them to our families.

*Shifts for basket prep time will be 11/15-11/19, 11am-1pm OR 2pm-4pm (15-20 vols each). Distribution shifts will occurr 11/21-11/23, and will be 10am-2pm (5-10 vols) OR 2pm-6pm (up to 5 vols). Please note that minors may assist with prep week, but distribution shifts will be open to adult volunteers only due to client confidentiality. Sorry for any confusion!

**This opportunity is posted on multiple sites, and so even though a shift may look available it may have already been booked. Please contact our Volunteer Admins, Jessi & April, directly at to confirm availability and register for your chosen shift now!
