Charitable Institutions as well as other organizations both public and private are beating the deadline in collecting donations needed for Thanksgiving Baskets for their Thanksgiving program this year. Since 1988, thousands of under-resourced families have enjoyed their holiday dinner on Thanksgiving day.
Although not all things are given, Thanksgiving Baskets contain goodies needed to come up with a Thanksgiving meal less the turkey. Highly recommended products for the evening meal include things like any box of instant mashed potatoes, a bag of stuffing mix, turkey gravy, preferably two cans, cranberry sauce, mushroom soup, green beans, fried onions, chicken broth, cans of sweet potatoes and corn.
For the dessert part of the Thanksgiving basket, items could be boxes of Jell-O, cans of fruit, evaporated milk, a box of pie crust mix, pie filling, one box of dessert mix and a roll of tin foil needed during food preparation. Additional non-obligatory items may also include tea, coffee or hot chocolate.
The participating organizations would normally ask that the baskets only contain non-perishable food and no turkeys. Giving a $25.00 grocery gift card is also another suggestion but is not required. However, this will can be of great help too as recipient families can purchase other items they need like a turkey maybe for their meal.
Let us all help fill each Thanksgiving Baskets this year by sending your donations to The GreatFloridaHomes Team or you may call call 943-343-4423 and the tam will pick up your donation, no matter how small!
