Turkey Basket Project
Sunday 20th Nov, 2016
North Presbyterian Church300 N. Forest Rd. Williamsville, NY
Each year we partner with local churches, schools and organizations to help feed families at Thanksgiving. We need your support as well. You can sign up to provide fixings for a meal or donate money. There will be sign-up sheets in Westminster Hall. If you are unable to get to the church but you want to help, you can call the church at 716-632-1330 or you can send your check, made out to North Presbyterian Church, 300 N. Forest Rd., Williamsville, NY 14221 and note “Turkey Baskets” on the memo line.
We will be working once more with Congregation Shir Shalom, Temple Beth Zion, the Presbyterian Village, Amherst Presbyterian Church, Williamsville East High School, Christ United Methodist Church, local Girl Scout troops, Dash’s Markets, Tops Markets and Wegmans, to supply 500 families with all the fixings for them to fix their own Thanksgiving dinners.
The baskets include: a frozen turkey, two cans vegetables, two cans fruit, cranberry sauce, stuffing mix, potatoes, brownie mix or dessert and optional beverage. We will accept complete baskets with all of the items or donations of any of those items that we need as well as donations of cash, as we usually need to purchase 300-plus turkeys. A complete basket costs approximately $35.00.
Also, if Tops and Wegmans offer their program of buying a turkey at a reduced price with a $25.00 purchase of groceries, please consider buying one for us and we can store it at church until the distribution date of November 20th at North Church. If you need any additional information about this project, call Anne McIlroy at 716-688-4781.
