Why Give?

Imagine telling your children you don’t have ​ enough money to buy food for Thanksgiving dinner. While everyone else in your community gathers ​ around the dinner table to celebrate a day of thanks, you and your children have little to celebrate. That’s what Thanksgiving means ​ to too many families in the ​ Scranton area.

Each year, the need gets greater with many working families living at or below the poverty level. But with your help, we can change that. You can help us ease the burden of their lives with a food basket that brings comfort and warmth at the most family-oriented holiday, Thanksgiving.

As your family sits down to dinner this Thanksgiving, the word nourish will be ever present in your mind. Because together with hundreds of other donor families in the community, you will have given nourishment to families in need, many of them with young children.

Please give what you can so that other families ​may enjoy this day the same as your family.
