About Thanksgiving Share
To help families in our area enjoy a great Thanksgiving dinner, in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, people hit their grocery stores with a shopping list and bag in tow and "pack a sack" for Thanksgiving Share.
On the Saturday before Thanksgiving, volunteers distribute the bags, along with some additional items, to families who have pre-registered at the Spend Yourself Food Pantry.
