Thanksgiving is a special time to share with family and friends. But for most of our families, they are in unfamiliar settings, far away from those they know. Many forgo the tradition of Thanksgiving due to financial or transportation obstacles.

However, generous community members can provide the ingredients for the traditional holiday meal, allowing the families we serve to celebrate a bit of the norm, no matter what their circumstances are.  

Thanksgiving baskets can include items from the list below, and everything should be prepared for a family of six (so that we can accomodate all family sizes). These baskets are for our homeless shelters and support programs, which have available kitchen equipment like fridges and cooking facilities.

Thanksgiving basket items:
1 turkey (around 10lbs)
Foil roasting pan
5 lb bag of potatoes
Yams/sweet potatoes
Mini marshmallows
Prepared stuffing (like Stove Top)
1 lb butter
1 gallon milk
FRESH pie: Sweet potato, pumpkin, or apple 
Whip cream
Dinner rolls
Green beans 
Instant turkey gravy
Pre-packed salad mix
Salad dressing
1 bottle sparkling apple cider
Salt & pepper 
Cooking Oil
