Wow! What a day at The Hunger Coalition! On November 23, over 100 dedicated volunteers came together and helped distribute nearly 400 Thanksgiving Baskets to community members in need! Baskets were complete with a turkey, stuffing, potatoes, green beans, cranberries and a homemade pumpkin pie courtesy of The Sage School, The Community School, Syringa Mountain School and Pioneer Montessori.
Thank you to the generous donations at Albertsons checkstands and direct donations from the community to help make this happen!! Also thanks to all the volunteers and participants who came together to make this special day possible. What a wonderful feeling helping provide a hearty, delicious holiday meal to all of our community members!
Special shout out to The Community Library, Hailey Public Library and Bellevue Public Library for organizing a book giveaway for kids! Families could choose from a huge table of books to give their youngsters.
Here are some touching testimonials from Thanksgiving Basket recipients:
Happy Holidays everyone!!
