Thanksgiving Turkey Distribution

Save to Favorites


We are looking for volunteers to help us distribute Thanksgiving Turkeys and Food Boxes to families in need, the two weeks leading up to Thanksgiving. Volunteers will help move product, pack food boxes, load cars, check in families and direct traffic. This opportunity will be outside, in our large parking lot, to help maintain social distancing. Face masks are required. Hand sanitizer, disposable masks and disposable gloves are available to you at the pantry. Come help make a proper Thanksgiving meal a reality for a family in need! Small groups welcome.

Specifically, we are distributing on Nov 16 - 19 and Nov 23 - 24. We will be closed the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and on Thanksgiving day.
