All donations received will be used to create Thanksgiving Dinner Boxes for local families in need. Any extras received that are not paired with a box will be donated to the Crisis Food Center for distribution. Last year we were able to feed 55 families and donate a carload of food. Remember, the competition ends November 12, so visit your favorite establishment and help them bring the trophy home.
