Project Thanksgiving Thanks 2021

* Project Thanksgiving 2021 was a huge success in terms of collecting supplies and donations, earning a grant, holding food drives and being blessed with many, many volunteers! We were able to meet the needs of 140 families in our school district with our Thanksgiving baskets.
We would like to thank: - the Alpha Graphics staff and Deb from the MASD Copy Center at Elmwood Academy for always remembering Project Thanksgiving and giving a call whenever they had a stack of
-Giant Food Stores for approving our grant request for $1,500.00 in gift cards
-Giant Foods for providing reusable bags to help with putting our food together for our families.

- Paulus' for the wonderful pies
- Martin’s Pastry’s donation of 150 packs of potato rolls to add to our Thanksgiving baskets.
- CRABTREE, ROHRBAUGH & ASSOC for conducting a food drive-
- HOPS & BARLEYS for donating 80 turkeys and conducting a food drive
- CSL Plasma donating boxes for our baskets
- Girl Scout Troop # 11588 for a fantastic food drive in Witney Ridge

- Upper Allen Fire Department for having a huge success with their food drive
Without individual volunteers, Project Thanksgiving would not be able to provide the baskets to the district families. Thank you to all the volunteers who came to help with basket assembly! Basket distribution night went very well as a drive thru due to COVID. With all the volunteers help, things went smooth and we were able to provide a Thanksgiving meal to our families.
Project Thanksgiving wants to thank all those working within the district, either up front or behind the scenes to pull together all the loose ends of our project, including Nick Butt, the school principals, Kim Kerchner, the school counselors, teachers, secretaries, cafeteria staff and the custodial staff for helping us when we needed supplies and to use their hallway for our completed baskets.
And saving the best for last, we send out a great big thank you to the parents and their children which completes the circle of our community. Without their food donations, gift card donations and turkey certificate donations, none of this would have been possible. You are all truly amazing and I hope to see all of our wonderful volunteers for Project Thanksgiving 2022.
