Thanksgiving Turkey Basket Drive

Be a part of Wilkinson Center’s Annual Turkey Basket Drive and Distribution as volunteers collect and distribute Thanksgiving baskets to hundreds of families.  Sponsor a Thanksgiving basket for a family in need by purchasing the food and a turkey voucher for a family’s Thanksgiving dinner.  What’s in a  Thanksgiving Basket?
 
·      Basket/Container for the food.  Be festive and creative!!  Let the basket/container that holds the food reflect your holiday traditions.  This is sharing your family with another family. 
·      $20.00 (cash or check payable to 1st UU).  Wilkinson Center will purchase gift check vouchers from Butterball. Gift checks do not expire; can be used towards a turkey, ham and other food items to accommodate vegetarian recipients.
·      Canned vegetables:  For example:  green beans, corn, green peas, cranberry etc.
·      Gravy (jar or mix)
·      Boxed stuffing/dressing mix and/or boxed potato mix
·      Bread, Rolls or cornbread mix
·      Pumpkin or Pecan pie
·      Include any of the food items that are part of your Thanksgiving Celebration

Optional Items:

·      Festive paper plates and table ware
·      Thanksgiving decorations
