Needy Family Fund
2017 Thanksgiving Program

 Donor Sign Up


This program assists under-resourced families from our community. We help by providing them with all of the ingredients needed to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. If you would like to help, please contact us by November 3  so that we can estimate how many families we will be able to provide for.

You may also sign up online at our website, under Assistance Programs tab, or click to sign up online!

The suggested basket contents are listed below but feel free to add a card, note, or other food items that you feel would benefit the family. Baskets need to be returned to the Township Center by November 16. (The Township will be closed November 10 and 11. No one will be available to accept your donations.)
