Hollywood Junior Chamber (Jaycees) Help Local Families Enjoy this Thanksgiving Holiday

Hollywood junior chamber (jaycees) help local families enjoy this thanksgiving holiday

On November 26th the Greater Hollywood Junior Chamber (Hollywood Jaycees) will be delivering baskets filled with food for a full Thanksgiving dinner to approximately 75-100 families who are in need and live within the Greater Hollywood area.

Members of the Hollywood Jaycees have long played an active role in the Hollywood community by carrying out various philanthropic projects. One such project is the Thanksgiving Baskets. The Jaycees have been providing Thanksgiving meals to pre-selected families in our community for over 35 years.

The organization relies on the generosity of the local business community in order to continue this project.

The Jaycees invite your participation by donating items such as turkeys, stuffing, vegetables, canned yams, gravy, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, pies, etc. to be included in the Thanksgiving baskets. Monetary donations and gift cards will also be accepted, which will be used to purchase items listed above. You can mail them to 2930 Hollywood Blvd. Hollywood, Florida 33021 or drop in the lock box out front of building.

Please visit www.thanksgivingfund.com if you are able to volunteer to help assemble and deliver baskets to the families or to see what items are still needed that you can commit to bring for the baskets.

You may also drop off canned food at the following locations:

Art & Culture Center, 1650 Harrison Street during hours of operation

Jaycee Hall 2930 Hollywood Blvd. on Monday, November 25th from 1-5 p.m. or Tuesday, November 26th from 9 a.m.-noon.
