Food Donations


It's not Thanksgiving without turkey! We estimate we'll need 50-60 turkeys for this year's dinner. Lots of people = lots of turkey! If you're able to donate a turkey (or two), please plan to drop it off during our drop-off window. FROZEN turkeys only, please!  We are unable to accept thawed or pre-cooked turkeys.

Drop off dates & time:

Wednesday, November 15 from 12 to 8 PM

Location: Family Room (use door C) at Freshwater Community Church

​Note: If you are unable to drop off your turkeys during these times, please consider donating in another way.

Green beans? Cranberry sauce? Yes, please! Click HERE to see our canned goods donation needs. Large #10 cans make it easier for our cooks to prepare these items. See below for drop-off information.

Drop off dates: Wednesday, November 15 - Tuesday, November 21
Times: 9 AM - 2 PM

Location: Freshwater Community Church - Main Office (use door B) 


A slice of sweetness to top off the meal! We are asking for unopened, store-bought Costco pumpkin pies only (they're about $5.99 each) dropped off the day before Thanksgiving.

Drop off dates: Wednesday, November 22
Times: 12 - 8 PM
Location: Family Room (use door C) at Freshwater Community Church
