United Way of Palm Beach County organizes a food drive called Project Thanksgiving every year around the holiday season. This year will mark the 30th anniversary of Project Thanksgiving, and since the event was first developed, the goal has remained the same: to provide the local community and neighbors in need with a traditional and hearty holiday meal. Sadly, nearly 300,000 local families don’t know where their next meal is going to come from, and over 53,000 of those in need are children under the age of 18. Additionally it really only takes $20 to effectively feed a family of four.
United Way of Palm Beach County has many ways in which local residents can participate in Project Thanksgiving. Donate to the organization online, donate by check made payable to United Way of PBC/Project Thanksgiving or simply send a text. You can also host your own food drive, requesting the participation of your friends, family or place of employment. The organization is also offering a virtual food drive option due to the current state of things period to learn more simply visit the website link above.
