The Harry Chapin Food Bank continues the tradition of helping families put a Thanksgiving bird on the table. We’re asking the community to help.
The food bank has purchased $35,000 in gift cards, at $10 each, to distribute to families via our partner agencies. The cards are designated for the purchase of food at local supermarkets for holiday meals.
These gift cards are often more economical and efficient for clients, because they can purchase their turkeys, chickens or other Thanksgiving food at the sale prices offered by the stores, making their dollar stretch further.
In addition, we’re also asking the community to help by donating 3,000 turkeys that the food bank can give to partner agencies for families in need.
Those who wish to donate turkeys or chickens can drop them off at the food bank’s Fort Myers Distribution Center or the new Collier County Center in Naples from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. For information or questions, call 239-334-7007.
