ACTS Hunger Prevention Center seeks to help food insecure families enjoy the upcoming holiday season. November 1st - 20th is our annual Operation Give Thanks initiative where we provide Thanksgiving bags to families we serve, in addition to the regular bags of food they would normally receive. Last year we provided Thanksgiving meals for 1,000 families in our community and we anticipate reaching that number again this year. Our goal is to ensure every family we serve has a meal to share on this special holiday. Every year we rely on donations from our community in order to share the joy of the season with our neighbors who may be struggling, and we are looking to you again this year! Individuals, families, faith-based communities, schools, civic groups, businesses and other organizations are welcomed to donate items from the list below and can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. We are thankful for your support and know the families are as well!
