Mt. Morris Loaves and Fish Food Pantry
Seeks Donations for Thanksgiving Dinners
Mt. Morris Loaves and Fish Food Pantry is seeking donations to provide holiday meal boxes to local families in need. As in previous years, the pantry will be providing Thanksgiving meal boxes. The meal boxes, made possible in partnership with Northern Illinois Food Bank, contain a turkey, potatoes, stuffing, gravy, canned fruit and vegetables, coffee, and dessert – enough to feed a family of eight.
For the first time in the pantry's history, Mt. Morris Loaves and Fish Food Pantry will also be providing Christmas meal boxes to those in need as well. The Christmas meal box will contain a ham and all of the trimmings to feed a family of eight.
A $16 donation will allow Mt. Morris Loaves and Fish Food Pantry to provide a local family the opportunity to enjoy a traditional holiday meal with their loved ones this holiday season. A donation of $32 will provide both a Thanksgiving meal and a Christmas meal for a family of eight. To sponsor one, two or more families, please send your gift to Loaves and Fish Food Pantry, Att: Nelson Miller, Treas., P.O. Box 202, Mt. Morris, IL 61054. Please send your gift by November 15. The Thanksgiving meal boxes will be distributed on November 23rd and the Christmas meal boxes will be distributed on December 18th.
We need your help to make this project successful! The pantry hopes to raise $4,800 above our regular donations in order to purchase 150 Thanksgiving boxes and 150 Christmas boxes. Will you help us reach the goal to provide each family in need with a Thanksgiving and Christmas meal? Any donations received above the amount needed to purchase the meal boxes will be used to purchase food for the pantry.
