Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets

Can you provide a Thanksgiving Dinner Basket for someone in need?

Gather your family, friends, or co-workers to make up a basket for one or more low-income families or individuals. It’s easy and fun, and you’ll know that you’ve made the holiday brighter for a struggling adult, senior or family.

This year, due to a shortage of freezer space on-site at SOME, we are asking Thanksgiving Basket Drive participants to NOT donate physical turkeys. If you wish to provide a turkey for the drive, please bring $15 per turkey in cash or check (made out to SOME) with your items or make a donation online.

Please sign up by contacting [email protected].
