The distribution night before Thanksgiving is always one of the most rewarding nights of the year! White and Steele volunteers Laura Fuller (with kids Leah and Jackson), Karen Caston, Louie Reininger, Louis Garcia, Sarah Harrington, and Susan Portillos helped 25 families take home a turkey and enough fixings to have a great holiday dinner! Almost 600 turkeys were donated to Metro Caring this year for families in need to have a traditional Thanksgiving. Volunteers were able to help give out 3,009 pounds of food (the most our volunteers have ever seen!). Laura and kids sorted produce, Louis spent the night in the freezer stocking bins, and Sarah, Louie and Susan were in the marketplace assisting shoppers.
A lot of families were able to have a good Thanksgiving this year. Thank you volunteers!
