About the Event



mountaireWe are proud to say that we are an official Food Drop for Thanksgiving for Thousands program, hosted by Mountaire Farms. Last year, Mountaire Farms fed over 10,000 families that have fallen upon hard times in our local area. Unfortunately, there are many more families that could be blessed with this offering. Now, we as a community can help this great Stewart of our community reach its goal to let no family go hungry on this day of Blessing. Please help us reach this goal. Bring a can of Corn, Green Beans, Peas, Cranberry Sauce Box of Stuffing, or a Jar of Gravy and help the neighbors in our community. Something that Mountaire Farms has been striving to do for years, The Secret of Living is Giving.
