DILLSBURG, PA – New Hope Ministries, a social service agency which feeds the hungry and helps people achieve stability in their lives, is asking for help from the community to provide low-income families with turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner this year. At the time of this news release, 2,600 turkeys are still needed.
Community organizations (such as churches, businesses, and civic groups) are already lined-up to provide non-perishable food for the Thanksgiving dinner baskets, which are distributed to families beginning November 16 at each of New Hope’s nine locations. Turkeys are usually obtained as separate donations from the community and through purchases at local wholesale and retail outlets. The goal is to give every family a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.
Donations of fresh or frozen turkeys are the highest need right now, and can be dropped-off at any New Hope location through November 16th. Volunteer opportunities to help distribute Thanksgiving dinner baskets to families are also available.
