Friendly Hands Foodbank Donations

We’re asking members if they could collect items needed at Friendly Hands Foodbank for what is anticipated to be an effort to feed 400 plus families this season.

They are looking for the following:

Turkeys (Frozen or fresh)

Cranberry Sauce

Stuffing

Canned or fresh veggies

Rice

Corn

Potatoes

The families will be picking up the donations on Saturday, November 21 so if we could have everything we are donating by our next meeting, Thursday, November 19 it should work.

Ron Barrante has agreed to be a drop off point for canned goods and non-perishables.

If we want to do Turkeys, I recommend bringing them to our next meeting and I can drop them off to FHFB rights after our meeting. They have refrigeration.

They will also be sending me a couple of families to adapt this year for Christmas. While we won’t be having a wrapping party, members have volunteered to do the wrapping themselves and get them dropped off.
