Help us give a great Thanksgiving to local families!

We are trying to give a bunch of local families a really great Thanksgiving. Every week, at the SixEight Food Pantry, we serve between 150 – 200 families. We are blessed to be able to partner with the Clark County Food Bank in serving them every week.

And even though we were able to give them food last year to help with their thanksgiving meal, there was one thing lacking, Turkey. Only a handful of our families got a turkey last year. This year, we’d like to change that. So…

When you go grocery shopping, would you buy on turkey for your family and one for a family at the SixEight Food Pantry? Often times, you can get a great deal at WinCo on a Turkey. Last year, Turkeys were between 24 & 38 cents per pound with a 50 dollar purchase. That makes an 18lb turkey $6.84 at 38 cents per pound.

So, will you buy a turkey for a local family, keep it in your freezer until Sunday, November 23 and then bring it to SixEight Church?

We will need turkeys of all sizes to match the families.  We also need aluminum baking pans for families who may not have them.  Then we will need some pre-cooked turkey for the homeless who have no ability to cook.  We will be exploring all avenues of making this happen, but we need your help.

     1.  During the next month many stores will have really good special offers on turkeys (2 for 1 offers, free turkey when you spend a certain amount on groceries, etc).  Winco, traditionally, has some really good deals. 

     2.  Get some of your coworkers involved! Have them all chip in a buck, or buy a turkey. 

     3.  We will also accept cash to purchase turkeys.

So get on the gravy train and help us give a great thanksgiving for a lot of families!!!

    Oops. And when. Off to the store to buy them right now. I have a deepfreeze so they will be fine until you are ready for them. Cheers,
