2020 Thanksgiving Food drive

Spiral of Love
Home for the Holidays
The 13th Annual Families Helping Families Thanksgiving Food Drive.

We are a grassroots community event providing Thanksgiving meals to those in need. Initially, focusing on the Bellevue School District and now expanding to reach surrounding communities. As we celebrate 13 years of a community coming together we sincerely thank all the families, friends, neighbors and donors who have helped us to serve over 35,000 people.

This year our theme is spiral of love. Imagine a warm cinnamon roll with a beautiful spiral in the middle. Our community works at it's best when we all unite and as we reach out to each other and share our hearts and generosity we expand the spiral and grow stronger together!


We are a not for profit grassroots effort raising funds to build Thanksgiving baskets for local families in need. The end-beneficiaries are those families. The funds raised by this GoFundMe campaign are deposited into a private account, managed by Anne Medzegian,  set up specifically for this annual food drive effort. We then use that account to purchase the goods and distribute to the deserving families.
