Thanksgiving Basket Drive for Freeport Community Services

Each year, EFDM collects ingredients for Thanksgiving baskets that will be donated to the Freeport Community Center. This tradition is so very appreciated by the Community Center as the need is great; they depend on our baskets each year. We put together an entire Thanksgiving meal for a family in each basket and we will make up as many baskets as we are able. Let’s see if we can break our record this year! Our goal is 20 baskets will help 20 families in need in our community.

If you would like to contribute, here is a list of items that the Community Center has requested:

Canned vegetables (carrots, green beans, peas, corn, etc.)
Potato flakes 
Stuffing mix
Cranberry sauce
Pie crust
Pie filling
Large roasting pans
$10 Shaw’s gift cards (for turkeys). 
Our deadline for donated items is Friday November 17.  Baskets will be put together on Monday November 20.  If you are able to lend a helping hand with the basket making, please let us know!
