Thanksgiving - Turkey Express Volunteer Needs
Turkey Express Telephone Reservationist are the volunteers who receive the phone Thanksgiving meal reservations from those in need in our community. The reservationists are needed during the week of November 9th to 13th and 16th-20st between the hours of 9:30am-12:00pm and 12:30pm-3:30pm.
175 Delivery Teams are needed to deliver the meals out into the community on Thanksgiving day. Each team will have a map and receive 5-6 sites for delivery with about 30 meals total. Every fifteen minutes between 8:00am and 12:00pm there are 12 delivery teams being deployed into the community so that a total of 5500 Thanksgiving meals can be served. Bring a friend or your family and share in a time of giving as you meet the needs of others through the Turkey Express.
Kitchen volunteers are needed Thanksgiving morning from 7:30am to 10:30am to fill the take out trays, close the takeout trays, and to prepare bags with 1 meal, 2 meals, 3 meals, and 4 meals, rolls, silverware and pie to make the delivery orders according to the maps and reservations for meals based on the meal reservations taken from the community.
Volunteers are also needed for the Kitchen the week prior to Thanksgiving. Please call the Volunteer Department for details and registration.
