Option 1

Donate a complete Thanksgiving Basket that contains all of the fixings for a complete dinner for a family of four. One basket costs approximately $60 and includes a gift card for purchasing perishable food items.

Option 2

Donate one or more canned goods or nonperishable food items. Needed items include canned vegetables, canned tuna, peanut butter, cereal, oatmeal, pasta and tomato sauce.

Option 3

Donate a Kroger or Food Lion gift card (maximum value $20) so that VSH can purchase items for distribution at Thanksgiving.

The donation drive ends on November 20 at 5 p.m. Food delivery will take place on 11/24. Find out how easy it is to share your bounty with others.
