This Thanksgiving, we are supporting the efforts of Catholic Charities to “help those in need find their Thanksgiving.” For background, their Thanksgiving food drive last year was featured in this NYTimes article. There are two opportunities to participate:
1. Food Drive on Sunday, Nov. 17
We will be hosting a food drive on Sunday, November 17 to collect the following Thanksgiving dinner staples requested by the organizers:
- Cranberry sauce
- Brown gravy
- Stuffing mix
- Corn muffin mix
- Cake mix or pie filling
2. Food Distribution on Tuesday, Nov. 19
Volunteers are needed to assist with the food distribution on Tuesday, Nov. 19 at St. Jerome Church on Newkirk Ave. in Brooklyn. Help is needed with setting up the tables, distributing food items, and cleaning up. The distribution will run from 9 AM to 2:30 PM.
If you are able to help with the food distribution, please sign up below to indicate your availability.
Thank you for responding to this appeal.
