Dear Friends of the Pickerington Food Pantry,
Please consider helping the pantry in providing a Holiday Meal Basket to anyone, in the Pickerington Local School District, who is in need of food for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. You can help by donating a completed meal basket, by making a financial contribution toward the purchase of a meal basket, and/or by volunteering during our distribution of the baskets to our clients.
We will begin taking requests from clients for both Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday Meal Baskets on October 1, 2018.
We will need your commitment (see reverse side) to: volunteer, provide completed meal baskets, and/or your financial donation by October 31, 2018.
Donated meal baskets must be delivered between 9:00AM and 12:00PM, as they will be distributed to our clients between 1:00PM and 5:00PM, on:
- Sunday, November 18, 2018, for the Thanksgiving Holiday;
- Sunday, December 16, 2018, for the Christmas Holiday.
The suggested items for each food basket are as follows:
¨ Turkey (12 to 16lbs)
¨ Potatoes (5lb bag)
¨ Stuffing Mix (1 bag or 2 boxes)
¨ Gravy (2 mix packs or 2 jars/cans)
¨ Cranberries (2 cans)
¨ Vegetables (4 cans)
¨ Pie (1 NOT needing refrigeration)
By working together, we can provide this special service to those in need in our community and avoid duplicating our efforts.
Thank you for your consideration in helping those in need during the holidays.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your commitment to service, or questions.
