Each year Interfaith Caregivers, in partnership with Mount Carmel Guild, distributes Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets to our food-vulnerable care receivers. During the pandemic, safe distancing prevented us from being able to craft and distribute the full gift bags, although we were still able to provide food gift cards to meet some of these holiday food needs.
This November we were thankful to bring back this full partnership project once again! With our volunteers helping with coordination and distribution, and the food pantry from the Mount Carmel Guild providing bags of dinner groceries, 29 of our homebound elderly and disabled neighbors received the supplies and funds for a full thanksgiving dinner. Absolutely one of our “Favorite Things”!
