A traditional Thanksgiving meal includes a freshly roasted turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, and green bean casserole. What if you weren't capable of providing such a meal to your family? Home Sweet Home Ministries and Midwest Food Bank are partnering once again this year to provide 2,500 Thanksgiving meal boxes to families in need. As the holiday season approaches, we ask for your help collecting turkeys.
"Our goal is to collect 2,500 turkeys by November 22nd. We graciously ask the community to help show their support," says Home Sweet Home Ministries' Chief Operating Officer, Matt Burgess. "Your contributions will ensure families in need experience the comfort of a Thanksgiving meal."
Beginning in October, Bloomington-Normal grocery stores are helping with the cause. Hy-Vee will be selling the items needed for the boxes in individual or case quantities, in addition to $15 turkey cards. Schnucks will be selling the $15 turkey cards and $10 prepackaged meal bags. Anyone from the community can visit these locations and donate a turkey or bag. Donations will also gladly be accepted at Midwest Food Bank located at 2301 Warehouse Drive in Normal or at Home Sweet Home Ministries located at 303 East Oakland Avenue in Bloomington. You can also donate online. Make sure to designate your gift for Give Thanks.
Home Sweet Home Ministries is grateful for caring people like you to come together to ensure the success of this effort.
Thank you for sharing your blessings this Thanksgiving!
