You Can Help Families in Need This Thanksgiving

Every family deserves a nourishing holiday meal. So we’re thrilled to announce that the United Way Foundation is funding produce ingredients for families who participate in the BackPack program at South Avenue. To complete the meals, South Avenue PTA will give each family a Key Foods gift certificate for purchasing a turkey. Please click the button to the right and make a donation toward the cost of these 30 gift certificates.

We’d also like to thank the local farms and programs contributing to these delicious Thanksgiving meals:

Common Ground Farm – butternut squash, carrots, kale, and spinach
Dagele Farm – potatoes and onions
Fishkill Farms – apples
Kids R Kids  is supplying stuffing and gravy mix!

Want to do more? There are many volunteer opportunities! On Monday at 11 am, we’ll be weighing and packing spinach, kale, and apples at Common Ground Farm. If you’d like to help, please email Jackie Bucelot Mills, who runs the program in partnership with Kids R Kids.
