Dear Organization Leaders,
The Interfaith Food Bank is now coordinating PROJECT THANKS, our annual holiday basket project. Last year we processed 815 applications and received over $10,000 in donations. We are anticipating another successful season of giving from the heart.
Project Thanks brings together local outreach organizations, individuals and the Interfaith Food Bank to help provide a traditional Thanksgiving meal to families, seniors and veterans who may not be able to afford one. The project has been extremely successful by including participation from organizations and individuals who have collected supplies, divided and packaged Thanksgiving baskets and then distributed them to assigned families. The Interfaith Food Bank will provide applications and coordination (see below).
We appreciate all who have participated in the past and are asking everyone to meet or increase their involvement to meet the growing need in our community. This year, we would like your Thanksgiving baskets distributed no later than Sunday, November 20, 2016. Signed applications and any surplus food must be returned to the Interfaith Food Bank no later than November 21 by 3:00 pm. We need this time to enable us to verify who did or did not receive their basket, and allow us to do one final distribution from the food bank.
Please support Project Thanks by returning the attached participation form as soon as possible. Requests for assignments from any specific area will be handled on a first come first served basis, so if you want to serve people near you, please, get those forms back to me as quickly as possible. I am available to answer any questions you may have regarding the process. Below is also a copy of the menu for each basket to keep the donations as consistent as possible. You may also choose to make a cash donation of $50.00 per basket, and we will do the shopping and distribution for you.
Please help us continue to provide a holiday memory that will be remembered as fondly as your own. Thank you for your support. On behalf of everyone who will receive a holiday basket, we thank you!
Please return this information as soon as possible to:
