[ARCHIVED] Thanksgiving Food Drive

Bowl of Soup

Our Youth Bureau INTERFACE Program’s Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive will run from October 16 to November 16. Last year’s Thanksgiving Food Drive provided hearty Thanksgiving meals to 1,165 families in Brookhaven. Without the generous donations received during the drive, this would not have been possible.

Event Details

Suggested Food Items

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.

Gift Cards

$10 gift cards to any local grocery store can also be donated for the purchase of turkeys.
