An event every week that begins at 8:00 am on Sunday, repeating until November 24, 2019
The holidays can be hard on families, so this year, we want ease the burden for families in our Riverside community.
You can help us make sure that local folks have all of the supplies they need to provide a delicious traditional Thanksgiving dinner for their families. Beginning on Sunday, November 3, we will be collecting items to pack into “Dinner-to-Go” boxes that will be delivered to local families on Monday, November 25. We are asking everyone to consider donating the non-perishable food items and gift cards on the list below. Feel free to bring items any Sunday up until November 24.
If you would like to fill your own complete box as a family you can do that too, and you can drop it off on any Sunday in November. The following is what we are collecting:
Boxed or pouches of instant mashed potatoes
Boxed stuffing mix
Canned turkey or chicken gravy
Boxed macaroni & cheese
Boxed/packets biscuit or corn bread mix (“just add milk or water” varieties)
Canned green beans
Canned sweet potatoes or yams
Canned cranberry sauce
Boxed dessert mix (shelf stable: cookie mix, pumpkin bread mix, bars, etc.)
$20 Food Lion giftcard to purchase a turkey
Thank you so much for helping us provide Thanksgiving dinners to folks in our community!
