Support, help needed for annual Thanksgiving meal

Support Local Journalism


It’s that time of year to plan our annual Winters Community Dinner. With everyone trying to get donations for so many needs, we feel it’s very important to feed those in need and home alone on Thanksgiving Day.

The purpose of this dinner is a wonderful opportunity to show our neighbors we care, by serving or delivering a hot, traditional Thanksgiving meal with dessert. There will be a sit-down full traditional meal served at the Community Center at noon on Thanksgiving Day. Deliveries of meals will take place from 12-1 p.m.

The majority of the folks we serve are seniors, disabled and those home alone on Thanksgiving Day. Last year, many families an individuals were served who had nothing to eat on Thanksgiving Day.

Can you donate funds to help purchase food? Could you help box up meals to be delivered on Thanksgiving day? Or, maybe serve or deliver a dinner to your neighbor? You can donate at First Northern Bank under Winters Community Dinner. We can provide you with a donation letter for tax purposes as well.

If you would like to help with preparing or serving meals, please call Marie, 795-4824, or  Gwen, 795-4444, for more information.

We also will have red food collection bins around town at Anytime Fitness, Camille’s, Pacific Ace Hardware, First Northern Bank and the Community Center to drop off canned green beans, canned corn and boxed stuffing mix. There is an additional purple bin outside Anytime Fitness where items can be dropped off 24-7.

If you would like to donate a turkey, please call Marie or Gwen to arrange to drop it off at the Community Center. First Northern Bank also has turkey donation cards where anyone can donate to the dinner.

If you, your family, your neighbor or someone you know here in town needs a meal on Thanksgiving, call Marie, 795-4824, or  Gwen, 795-4444.

Thank you for your consideration, and Happy Thanksgiving.
