Thanksgiving - Turkey Express Volunteer Needs
Turkey Express Telephone Reservationists are the volunteers who receive the phone Thanksgiving meal reservations from those in need in the community. The reservationists are needed during the weeks of November 11th-15th and 18th-22nd between the hours of 9:30am-12:00pm and 12:30pm-3:30pm.
180 Delivery Teams are needed to deliver the meals out into the community. Each team will have a map and receive 4-6 sites for delivery with 25-26 meals total. There are many times available between 8:00am and 12:00pm. Every fifteen minutes there are 10 delivery teams being deployed into the community so that a total of 5000 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.
Food Drives are needed for instant mashed potatoes (1250 boxes - 40 oz. boxes), canned yams (770 cans), green beans (770 cans), cranberries (770 cans), and canned corn (770 cans), and of course, turkeys!
450 Baked Apple, Sweet potato, or Pumpkin pies are needed. Please register with the Volunteer Department and deliver the pies on November 26 or 27 between the hours of 8:00AM-4:00PM.
IMPORTANT: PIES CANNOT BE FROZEN. THEY MUST BE BAKED AND READY TO SERVE.
