Turning empty plates into ThankFULL hearts and tummies over the holidays.
The ThankFULL campaign was created with the idea of turning empty plates into ThankFULL hearts and tummies by providing meals for our neighbors who struggle with hunger.
During the holiday season we look forward to gathering and sharing a meal with friends and family, but for families facing financial challenges, the holidays can be a painful reminder of hunger.
From October to November, ThankFULL Tummies helps provide turkeys for Thanksgiving, and throughout the month of December ThankFULL Hearts raises funds to provide 1.2 million holiday meals for local children, families, seniors and veterans in need.
Over the years this effort has connected countless of people with nutritious food who would otherwise go hungry if not for the support of our community.
How do those in need receive food?
Your support helps families like Grace and Belle’s
Grace and Belle’s mom, Diane brings her two little girls to a Mobile Pantry near their home. She says it’s a huge relief to be able to visit the pantry for help with food. “It’s a blessing, what you’re doing.”
They sometimes struggle to afford healthy food, and like many families in our community, they stradle the line between being able to pay basic expenses and needing a hand up.
Your generosity means Grace, Belle and their parents are able to celebrate the holidays together around a special meal. So many families like theirs give thanks for your support during the holiday season.
