Thanksgiving Turkey Drive- Full Plates Project
Community Cooperative is reaching out to the community to help your neighbors in need this Thanksgiving season. We are inviting individuals, businesses, organizations and community groups to help support families in need by helping provide a holiday meal to ensure there are no plates empty this Thanksgiving. We need to purchase, or have donations of more than 2,000 turkeys and all the Thanksgiving sides to ensure there no plates in SWFL will be empty this year. We can’t do it without you!
Way to help Full Plates Project 2018:
Donate funds to our Full Plates Project campaign, volunteer in our Community Cafes or one of our many mobile pantries, host a food drive or donate Thanksgiving supplies and turkeys!
