Give Thanks this year by helping a family in need. Last year was a magical success we've been invited to do it agian! This time provide for ALL families registered at the Allapattah YMCA, and staff, that is in need. Totaling 130 families.

Our goal is provide 130 Thanksgiving dinner baskets to 130 families in our local community that are affected by poverty and low income. Every $25 donation fills one basket with:

- 1 $10 "food-only" gift card for a turkey, ham or chicken to their local grocery store.
- a roasting tin, box of mashed potatoes, box of gravy, can of cranberries, green beans, rolls, stuffing & pumpkin pie
- a Thanksgiving Card (each donation can either hand sign their Thankgiving card or we will sign for you)

We will deliver all 130 baskets to the Allapattah YMCA preschool 2370 NW 17th Ave on Wednesday, November 21st between 3-5pm. All donors are welcomed to personally deliver their basket to the facility, or we will deliver it for you.  The YMCA will have all families notified.
