Every year, hundreds of families receive a Thanksgiving Basket from the Mission. These baskets are filled with all the fixings for a traditional Thanksgiving meal to be prepared and enjoyed with loved ones in the comfort of their home. This outreach makes a huge impact on the lives of struggling people like Ruby during the holiday season. Ruby and her husband have been coming to the Mission for food assistance for many years. “We have a large family that we care for. Money has always been tight. Thankfully, the Mission is always ready to help,” she shares.
The holidays can be especially difficult for Ruby and her family. Thankfully, preparing a Thanksgiving meal is one less thing to worry about. “I love the Thanksgiving Baskets! I always feel overjoyed to take one home and prepare a meal for our family. It makes the holiday more special.”
