Thanksgiving for Thousands 2018
November 10, 2018 - November 20, 2018
For 24 years, Mountaire Farms has been feeding needy families on Delmarva at Thanksgiving and throughout the year. The annual Thanksgiving for Thousands Food Drive is a great example of a community coming together to help those in need.
On Saturday, November 10th, volunteers will partner with local grocery stores to collect food donations. Stop by any of these participating stores: Giant Stores – Rehoboth Beach, Long Neck, Millville; Safeway Store – Rehoboth Beach; Hocker’s Super Center – Clarksville, Bethany Beach; Wal-Mart – Rehoboth Beach, Georgetown, Berlin, Seaford and Milford; Redner’s – West and North Dover, Georgetown, Camden, Milford; and Save-A-Lot – Millsboro, Seaford. Our volunteers will have lists available of suggested items to purchase and donate.
On Monday, November 19th from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m., more than 350 volunteers will meet at our warehouse in Selbyville to pack the food boxes –including a Mountaire chicken roaster – and organize them for distribution. During the packing, WGMD will be broadcasting remotely. Check out the website at www.wgmd.com. Food boxes will be distributed to community organizations the following day, on November 20th.
This is one of the great food distribution events of the year, and we invite you to be part of a team that has helped so many in our community. If you would like to help those less fortunate have a Thanksgiving meal this year, please consider joining our volunteer team. For information on how you can help, contact Roger Marino at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (302) 934-3123.
Thank you Delmarva!
