THANKSGIVING CAMPAIGN

Give Hope & Give Thanks – Turkey Basket Donation

Thanksgiving is a day that we gather with friends and family alike to give thanks for the many blessings bestowed upon us this year. Sadly, many families don’t have the resources nor funds to have such a meal with their loved ones and we would like to help.

We are using our campaign for November to help Project Hope Alliance as well as Friendly Center gather items needed for a proper Thanksgiving meal and assembling turkey baskets.

Local OC: You can either assemble with ISP on 11/18 in Ladera Ranch OR drop off at 2 locations on 11/24 (see below for info on both)

Outside of OC: Google “turkey basket drive” in your area/county to locate a non-profit sponsoring such an event as must areas will have the same program for this month.
