Our Youth Bureau INTERFACE Program’s Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive will run from October 15 to November 12. Last year’s Thanksgiving Food Drive provided hearty Thanksgiving meals to 942 families in Brookhaven. Without the generous donations received during the drive, this would not have been possible.
Suggested food items for donations include all non-perishables, including, but not limited to: canned soups, canned cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, stuffing mix, instant potatoes, canned sweet or white potatoes, rice, canned vegetables, jar or canned sauce, macaroni, canned fruit, pudding, jello, cookie mix, cake mix, icing and juice. Due to refrigeration requirements, the Town cannot accept frozen turkeys. However, residents can donate $10 gift cards from local supermarkets, enabling families to purchase turkeys.
INTERFACE is a partnership between individuals, generous corporate neighbors and the Town of Brookhaven united in a shared effort to give assistance to Brookhaven’s less fortunate residents all year round.
