Every year the Holliston Girl Scouts help the Holliston Newcomers collect food for Thanksgiving Baskets for local families in need of assistance.
There are three ways your troop can help:
- Assist with the Food Drive at Shaw’s on 11/14/2015
- Assemble a “basket” by asking everyone in your troop to donate the components
- Make cards to go in the Thanksgiving baskets
The Sign-up link can be used to sign up to participate in the food collection at Shaws on November 14th, and it also has information for troops looking to make a basket, including this year’s item list (which has changed a bit from last year). The donation list is also included at the bottom of this post.
Please contact Lisa Brown with any questions @ email@example.com
To “make a basket” please put your troop’s non-perishable contributions for a Thanksgiving meal into a shopping bag. If your troop is able to include monetary donations for the turkey and pie/produce, that is also appreciated. The donation for a turkey is $20 and the pie/produce is $10.
Please bring your finished basket to the Shaw’s Food Drive on 11/14 or contact Lisa Brown to arrange pick-up/drop off.
The following is the shopping list for the non-perishable items:
- Canned or Jarred Turkey Gravy
- Canned Corn
- Can of Cranberry Sauce
- Bag or Box of Stuffing
- Box of Brownie Mix
- Roasting Pan
- Holiday Napkins
If your troop can not do a shift at Shaws, please consider having your troop make a basket and/or cards. All finished baskets will include cards, so having your troop participate in this way would be greatly appreciated. They should just be a generic, homemade “Happy Thanksgiving” card.
Cards need to be completed by 11/20 to be included with the finished baskets. Please drop them off at the food drive at Shaws on 11/14 or email Lisa Brown to arrange drop off/pick up: firstname.lastname@example.org.
