Help Distribute Thanksgiving Meals with Heart of Compassion Distribution
With the joyous season of holidays upon us, Heart of Compassion knows there are many families in need who need a helping hand in these difficult times. They will be hosting a Thanksgiving Turkey & Food Drive Giveaway to help more than 1,000 families put a nice Thanksgiving meal on their table this year. This event will include live music, djs, and many giveaways. This will be a drive-thru event, due to COVID precautions. Recipients will be able to stay in their vehicles and drive through the parking lot and volunteers will help load groceries and Thanksgiving fixings into waiting vehicles. As this will be a much larger event than their weekly public food distributions, they will need many more volunteers than other events they host. Feel free to invite friends and family members to join as volunteers! Due to safety concerns, they require volunteers to be at least 13 years old (and accompanied by an adult if they are minors.)
