2020 Thanksgiving & Christmas events
UPDATE: Due to covid, restrictions and lack of donations of funds and goods. We are trying to find ways to continue our annual event. We want to be there for those we serve, now more than ever we are needed. Our requests for help with food and emergency funding have gone up and not being there for families is not an option ! Our goal is to raise funds and food items virtually or by safe contactless pick up. If by 10/1 we do not reach our minimum goal needed sadly we will have to cancel our Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets event.
We have many ways you can help.
Once again we will be doing our yearly food drive and holiday dinner box giveaway.
if you would like to be part of this event either as a business donating items to be given to veteran and military families , businesses being a donation drop off location ( this year we will need 1 in Selah, 2 in yakima, west valley area and central yakima . We hope this year will be bigger and better than the last .
We will be partnering with the Family service . We will be at the Christmas event on the 21st of Dec. at the Readiness Center.
please make sure to contact us to get on the list for one of the turkeys or hams available.
We had a great event and helped over 25 families with turkey and a box of non perishable food items and fresh bread rolls.
we had donations of 15 turkeys thanks to Fred Meyer who once again stepped up to help us help those who served and are serving.
