York County Shelter Programs Appeals For Thanksgiving Food Donations

Last year, the York County Shelter Programs' Food Pantry gave out 1400 Thanksgiving food boxes.  Once again there is a great need for food to share with folks who are having difficulty feeding their families during these challenging economic times. Some people who were donors a few years ago now seek help from the Shelter's Food Pantry.

The donation of turkeys or a $10.00 donation to buy a turkey and the fixings
would be greatly appreciated. The donation of cranberry sauce and gravy
is also always welcome.

Please call Martha or Sandy in the Shelter's Food Services Department
at 324-8811 or Joan at 324-1137, ext. 105.  To send a donation towards the
purchase of the Thanksgiving boxes, please mail your check to:
York County Shelter Programs, P.O. Box 820, Alfred, Maine 04002
Please note  "Turkey Fund" on the check. Any help is greatly appreciated.
