Task force seeks turkey-dinner donations

Food bank helps feed families in need


The Parker Task Force food bank is asking the community to help provide complete Thanksgiving meals to families in need this holiday season.

Typically, the food bank feeds more than 200 families, or about 993 individuals, from Thanksgiving through Christmas.

“We’ve been doing the Community for Thanksgiving Meals program for about five years, and have been able to help countless families enjoy a full meal that they prepare in their homes, so they can have a good Thanksgiving without worries,” said Diane Roth, a volunteer with the Parker Task Force.

Donations should include all the items necessary for a family of four to six people, including a turkey, roasting pan, rolls, pie, potatoes and gravy, and anything else that would traditionally be consumed for Thanksgiving.

Monetary donations are also accepted to help families through the winter. Gift cards to local grocery stores are also useful, and donations can be made via Paypal at www.parkertaskforce.org.

“The holiday season is a vital time to raise money for all nonprofits,” said Steve Budnack, chairman of the Parker Task Force. “Any additional funds collected during Thanksgiving will be used to help prevent eviction or utility shut-off through the winter months.”

Donations can be dropped off at the Parker Task Force, 19105 Longs Way, the week prior to Thanksgiving from 9 a.m. to noon. The food bank is closed on Mondays and Thursdays. For more information, email foodbank@parkertaskforce.org or call 303-841-3460.
