And that's all folks!! Thanksgiving 2021 is OVER. We are tired and sore, but happy, fulfilled, and relieved knowing so many will have a great Thanksgiving feast. Thank you, thank you thank you to all of the families, businesses, churchs, organizations, schools, scout troops, banks, HHFB, children, and individuals who donated food, turkeys, money, time, gas, shares, likes, comments, and just talking about this and cheering us on. I don't have the final numbers, we are working on that, and I will post as soon as Juanita and I have double checked the math. Enjoy your own Thanksgiving dinner, family, and loved ones. Rest well, job well done! ... See MoreSee Less
I can’t begin to thank you all so much for the hard work you have put in the laSt two weeks.
Some of you this was your first thanksgiving, others were returning members of the community. You gave of your time to help us provide for Our community. I hope to see you again. Whether it’s an hour, three hours or a full shift. No amount of time to too small. Parents, you are more than welcome to bring your children.
Pre Thanksgiving report....We do not have the final numbers yet, as we still have tomorrow ( Wed ) to hand out the extra boxes and regular food boxes, but currently we are over 2000 families for Thanksgiving boxes. ( No I don't have the individual people counted yet ). It has been a hard, cold, but happy week. Wed will be the biggest day and we will have lots to hand out due to the extreme generosity and hard work of churches, families, organizations, scouts, schools, and businesses who have continued to make donations of both food and cash. We may do the physical part, but you all make it happen! We are so very thankful for all who have helped in any way. Myself and many of the volunteers have been limping around, and having sore backs and being exhausted and many of our guests have noticed. I have been asked, why do you all continue to do this when it hurts ? I've thought about that answer and we've talked about it at Pantry. The over all reason is, we know when we go to bed at night after a long hot shower and Tylenol, there are literally thousands who have food and are not hungry now. We know that those families will not have to explain to loved ones and their children why they don't have a Thanksgiving dinner. We know now that kids are going to bed with full tummies and parents did not have to give up their food to make that happen. THIS is why we continue on. IT IS SO WORTH IT! We will be very busy Wed, and if you would like to come help, we would love to see you. If you need food or a Thanksgiving box, come between 3-6, we would love to see you. And to everyone, and their are so, so many of you would made this all possible with your sharing, talking, donations of all kinds, we THANK YOU from the deepest part of our hearts and hope YOU go to bed feeling like we do. ((hugs))) Please share ... See MoreSee Less
We appreciate all you do for our community. I was at Walmart when several people,from your pantry, were there buying 4 carts of turkeys for families. I was so impressed how generous and kind your organization is. Thank you for all you do to help others.

Just a reminder as you are doing your last min. Holiday dinner shopping.... Bloomingfood's has honored us with being the charity for November for the Round UP program. Basically, you round up to the nearest dollar at the register, and they donate it to us to help with the Thanksgiving bills and Food bills for Christmas. You can also offer to add a donation, every $1 counts! PLUS, they have an anonymous donor willing to MATCH the donations! How cool is that!!
