Thank you to all of the kind people who helped us reach our original Thanksgiving goal. All of the community groups who are distributing the 5000 turkeys donated by Shady Brook Farms and the $25 Safeway gift cards donated by you are so grateful. Here's what one of our community partners had to say:
"Campaigns like this spread kindness and hope - and we all need more of this!"
And from another:
"This year in particular has been so challenging for families across the DMV...we believe the meaning of your giving this year will be appreciated even more."
WOW! Thanks to the generosity of so many people in our community, we have reached our 2020 Food 4 Families goal of $85,000! We do have a waiting list for turkeys and gift cards, so please continue to give. Every dollar donated will go to help even more people in need have a wonderful Thanksgiving meal this year.
Thanks to our friends at Shady Brook Farms, who have donated 5,000 turkeys. And we also thank our friends and partners at Comcast Business, Xfinity Communities and Comcast who have contributed $15,000. Safeway has also donated $25,000 to the cause.
All donations go to NBC4's Food 4 Families Fund at the Greater Washington Community Foundation and are tax-deductible.
Because of the pandemic, the need is greater than ever. Your donation will help us provide complete Thanksgiving meals to families, seniors, people experiencing homelessness, veterans and other neighbors in need. We partner with community groups and nonprofits, churches, youth organizations and fraternal organizations to distribute the meals.
Thank you for joining us in Working 4 the Community! And thanks to our sponsors for their help in making this campaign possible!
