Sack Thanksgiving Hunger
Come and help us Sack Thanksgiving Hunger on November 22nd at the Farmers Branch Campus. With no school for the whole week of Thanksgiving, students in our community who usually receive free/reduced breakfast and lunch can use some help. Like Sack Summer Hunger, we've partnered with Metrocrest Social Services to deliver food to these families during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Show up or donate if you want to help. $10 feeds a family for the week. Checks can be made out to The Branch with "Sack Thanksgiving Hunger" in the memo line.
How it works
Come to the Farmers Branch Campus on Saturday morning, November 22nd. Enter the building through the double doors under the car port and walk into the Family Life Center.
Volunteers will organize the food into an assembly line. You will grab a sack with a unique label and go through the line filling your sack with the allotted food items such as cereal, bread, peanut butter, and vegetables. When that sack is full you will take it to the designated spot with the corresponding label. Once all the bags are filled, everyone will help check these bags to make sure they have the appropriate items in them.
Once the bags are filled and checked, teams will be formed in order to travel to homes in the area for distribution. Team leaders will be given a map and a route with the family names and corresponding sack labels.
