Feeling Blessed: Thanksgiving 2015

12291252_978990698850246_4533166873612833450_oAfter testing out a new method of handing out our Thanksgiving boxes, we are able to say that this has been our most successful Thanksgiving event to date! The Orangevale Food Bank was able to provide 280 people with the items necessary to make their Thanksgiving feasts.

We would like to take the time to give a special thanks to our dedicated volunteers who shine their hearts in the best way for the goodness of our neighbors as well as the people and businesses to follow:

  • The generous contributions from our grocery store sponsors (Fair Oaks Trader Joe’s and Orangevale Walmart, and Orangevale Save Mart).
  • Our grocery store food drive sponsors (Orangevale Walmart, Fair Oaks Safeway).
  • The turkey donations from Senator Ted Gaines’ office.
  • The turkey donations from Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services.
  • The turkey donations from The Life Center Church in Orangevale.
  • The many organizations and schools who support us with food drives throughout the year via our Adopt-a-Month program
  • The community donations which helped buy the additional items needed.

Without the constant support of you all we would not be the organization we are today. We are ecstatic to share some of our blessings with those around us. Here are a few pictures from our preparation and event.
