Looking to give back to those in need this Thanksgiving season? TriCity Family Services runs an Adopt-a-Family Thanksgiving program for our client families in need.
Our clinical staff offers the Adopt-a-Family program to agency client families who are experiencing a difficult time, and are in financial need of help during the holiday season. The agency secures a corporate sponsor to donate a turkey for each family, but the community and individuals like you, provide the rest of the food for these families in need. It is truly an opportunity to support your neighbors in need at what can be a very difficult time of year. During the season of giving, we are so proud to be able to give the low-income and struggling families we serve a big helping hand, beyond the counseling and supportive services they receive from us on a regular basis.
To support the program, please donate all the holiday meal fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner. Food should not require refrigeration and should be able to sit for about a week without spoiling. In addition to the Thanksgiving meal fixings, donors often provide other pantry essentials and popular food items for households with children, and other special treats.
Last year, our Adopt-a-Family Thanksgiving Program provided a spectacular abundance of food, gift cards, hope and joy to 80 families in need, which included 177 adults and 146 children!
If you are interested in donating gift cards or food baskets for Thanksgiving Adopt-a-Family Program, email or call Mary Kay at email@example.com or 630-232-1070.
