Project GiveBack 22nd Annual Thanksgiving Food Distribution 11/19/16

Posted on September 1, 2015 by admin in Category 01, Category 02, Category 03

In 1995, a few friends got together and made Thanksgiving a little brighter by delivering grocery baskets to six families. Twenty-one years later, those few friends have grown to hundreds of  volunteers aiming to distribute over 2,000 healthy food baskets and other necessities to local families in need. As you begin to finalize your plans for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I invite you to partner with us on November 19, 2016, as we make a difference in our community through Project GiveBack’s 22nd Annual Thanksgiving Food Distribution.  This year more than ever, we need your financial and physical support.  You can donate online at  For corporate sponsorship and partnership opportunities, please email


Last year, volunteers delivered boxes full of food to over 2,000 families within our local community. We are thankful to those volunteers who have worked with us in years past and hope that Project Giveback will be considered again for your holiday community service efforts.  We also look forward to meeting and working with new volunteers! You can register to volunteer at after September 1st.

Working with us will only take up a small part of your holiday but will have a lasting effect on those benefiting from your efforts, including you!  Project Giveback is a child friendly organization; we welcome children at our events, as we believe you are never too young to learn the importance of “Giving Back”.  We also provide community service hours for students who attend schools where this is a requirement.


A light breakfast will be provided including coffee, morning juices and water so don’t worry about stopping by your local morning cafe because we’ve got you covered!
