Whoa, Turkeys!

At Bread for the City, we have been some turkey-distributing fools these last few weeks! As of close-of-business Tuesday, we have distributed 5,745 bags with a turkey and all the trimmings to low-income DC residents. It's a great time for all!

There is still time for you to get involved, if you're not already. Hold a Holiday Helpings drive in your office, school, place of worship, or community organization. Make a personal donation to the campaign. Ask friends or family to make a donation in your honor as a holiday gift, or make a donation in honor of some people on your list. (We are happy to provide personal cards acknowledging gifts in time for the holidays, as long as we receive all the information by December 10th.)

It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just next week. Even in this time of economic uncertainty, I know that we all have much to be thankful for. Let's join together and share our many blessings with those who are struggling this holiday season.
