THE GREAT THANKSGIVING BASKETS WRAP-UP
Thank you to those who contributed in the 2021 Womenade Thanksgiving Basket drive. We ended up feeding 66 families! It’s amazing to see what a small group of people can do. There were those who; shopped and dropped off food, gathered bags, loaned out their homes to store food, contributed monetary funds, worked with the Food Bank to secure food, picked up turkeys, drove all over town shopping for the best deals, assembled the bags and delivered bags to the schools. We all came together and made it happen. The deliveries were made on 11/19 to the First5 Early Learning programs in Grover Beach, Nipomo and Oceano, and the Step by Step Early Head Start program at Lopez High School. Each family received 4 bags - one containing a turkey, one with perishables such as rolls, butter, whipped cream, pie crusts, cheese, crema, apples and two bags filled with canned goods, broth, gravy, stuffing, cookies, marshmallows, cake mix and all sorts of additional dinner items. All of our contacts were full of gratitude!
