Hollywood Jaycees call for food, volunteers to pull off another successful Thanksgiving Basket delivery

On November 21st, the Hollywood Jaycees will deliver baskets filled with food for a full Thanksgiving dinner to approximately 100 families in need in the Greater Hollywood area.

The Jaycees have been providing Thanksgiving meals to members of the community for many years fueled by the generosity of the concerned citizens and the business community.

This year the community is once again being called to step up and pitch in by providing what they can.  The Jaycees are asking for turkeys, stuffing, vegetables, canned yams, gravy, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, pies, or anything that would make a memorable Thanksgiving holiday special for a neighboring local family.

The Greater Hollywood Junior Chamber (Hollywood Jaycees) play an active role in the community by facilitating philanthropic activities like their annual Thanksgiving Baskets delivery project. Visit www.thanksgivingfund.com to sign up if you’re able to volunteer to help deliver baskets to the families or to commit to bringing an item for the basket.
