2012 Holiday Basket Program a Success!

This year we continued our program to provide wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to our clients!

Our Thanksgiving meal consisted of a choice of turkey or ham, cranberry sauce, canned vegetables, stuffing, potatoes, onions, fresh fruit donated by Lisatano Fruit which included apples, oranges and pineapples, frozen pies and rolls.  We gave out approximately 140 meals.

Our Christmas meal consisted of pork tenderloin, canned and fresh vegetables, rolls, potatoes and frozen pies.  We gave out approximately 105 Christmas meals.  Our local Shaw’s Supermarket provided a lot of this food at low cost and even delivered it to us for distribution.

Over  40 volunteers cheerfully served those who visited us over a couple days to receive their meal.  Both meals were well received by our clients who were grateful to have this additional help during the holidays.
