Help us provide 25 local families with a Thanksgiving Dinner
Councilman Mark Squilla’s office has generously donated 25 turkeys to help launch our campaign to provide 25 local families with a Thanksgiving dinner. We’re committed to raising $800 over the next few days to so that the families have a complete meal. Please consider donating towards our cause – any amount will help!
Each family will receive a full meal including, turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, shell pasta and cheese, string beans, peas, corn, candied yams, corn, cranberry sauce, apple sauce, desserts and more.
Please note that we are raising funds to purchase the items rather than asking for canned-good donations.
Every contribution counts. Please consider donating today.
EPX will be assembling the bagged meals Tuesday, November 20 from 6:00pm-7:30pm at the East Passyunk Community Center. We will be distributing the bagged meals to confirmed families from 7:30pm-9pm at the East Passyunk Community Center.
If you’re interested in volunteering in any capacity, or if you have a friend or neighbor struggling this season who could benefit from a Thanksgiving meal, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
