Thanks for the food basket help
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul would like to thank the many community members and organizations who assisted in this year’s Thanksgiving basket food distribution. Over 460 food baskets were delivered between Saturday, Nov. 20, and Wednesday, Nov. 24, with a few last minute distributions going into Thanksgiving Day.
It took many community members, businesses, and volunteers to make this event successful. From Love INC, United Way, the Glory Hall, and the Salvation Army who assisted in the collection of food and sign up lists for baskets to the Thunder Mountain High School Interact Club who assembled over 500 food bags in one night, many people worked together to make this event a success. Local grocery stores who ordered supplies early, and generous donors allowed us to cover the increased cost of food and make sure no one who requested a basket was left empty handed. Over 100 volunteers assembled baskets, coordinated the pick up center, and distributed food by car to those unable to come and pick up their baskets. We are grateful for all who helped.
We look forward to continuing this holiday tradition in upcoming years and are always looking for ways to improve our delivery and our services. May everyone have a joyous and thankful holiday season.
