Thanksgiving Food Baskets

Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks, and an opportunity to share with others.

 

Each Thanksgiving, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul distributes over 300 food baskets to families and individuals in need.  These food baskets are made possible by the generosity of the Juneau community.

 

The average cost of a basket is $35.  Monetary and food donations are needed to meet all the requests received.  Food donations are gratefully accepted at the St. Vincent de Paul office, 8617 Teal Street, Monday – Friday from 9am – 5pm.

 

Thanksgiving food collected includes:

Turkeys

Instant mashed potatoes

Stuffing

Canned corn

Canned green beans

Canned yams

Pumpkin pies

Cranberry sauce

Gravy mix

Butter

 

Monetary donations can be sent to St. Vincent de Paul’s office, or made via the website.
