Help Us Fill a Holiday Food Basket

As we approach the holidays, we are excited to extend an invitation to those who find themselves in a position to help our neighbors who are in a stressful financial situation this holiday.  The Holiday Food Basket program has been a long-standing successful community cooperative effort and with your help we are excited to make this year a continuation of that success.

Below you will find a list of specific food items that would be helpful over the next several weeks for both Thanksgiving and Christmas deliveries. At the bottom of the page, you will also note where and when you can drop items off. In a time when divisiveness and vitriol are constantly displayed nationwide, we thank you in advance for your willingness to consider helping make this season a time to be truly thankful for a community that cares for each other, in spite of the differences we may have.
