Helping out for Thanksgiving
This morning was the meeting most of our members look forward too all year. We packed 35 boxes full with everything a family would need for a Thanksgiving dinner. We include gift cards so they can buy a turkey, boxes of stuffing, rolls, canned vegetables, cranberry sauce, potatoes, pies, cookies, and so much more.
We were able to pack 9 boxes for families in need at Matthew Patterson Elementary school and 26 to Putnam Community Action Program.
ALso, this past weekend, we participated in Putnam CAP's THanksgiving Weekend county wide food drive. Members from our club and our Interact club volunteered at Putnam Lake Market in Patterson and Kobackers in Brewster. We were pleased to find out when we dropped off the boxes this morning to Putnam CAP, that the food drive had gone so well, they were able to add fresh carrots and celery to our boxes as well!
So thank you for supporting us, whether it's coming to a fundraiser or donating at the food drive this weekend. We are proud to work with our community to help those in need.
