1000 Turkeys for 1000 Thanksgivings



UPDATE:Thanks to your INCREDIBLE generosity, we have exceeded our Thanksgiving fundraising goal – your donations have made it possible for us to provide 1,000 Thanksgiving meals! Thank you for responding in such a quick & generous fashion; the support that you have shown for your neighbors is just amazing! 

No family should go hungry. This Thanksgiving, Community Action Council of Howard County (CAC) has committed to ensuring that Howard County families in need have access to a holiday meal. We will provide a total of 1,000 turkey dinners with all the trimmings to low-income Howard County residents throughout the month of November at the Howard County Food Bank.

CAC secured funding for 560 families, and is seeking donations to feed an addition 440 families this Thanksgiving for a total of 1,000 families.

Our plan? Encourage local friends, families, businesses, and organizations to help us reach our goal of $8,800 as quickly as possible. That’s where you come in! Please help us spread the word.

Follow along on social media. Join our Facebook event for updates. Donate (below via credit card, Paypal, or check). Send a message to Tom Coale, the leader of this initiative, if your business would like to host a fundraiser specifically for this program.

Together we can put the “giving” back into Thanksgiving, with our gratitude on behalf of the families in need who will be able to celebrate this wonderful holiday together thanks to your generosity.
