Every Thanksgiving Season, the Garden Ridge (GR) Lions provide Thanksgiving meal donations to less fortunate families in the Garden Ridge and surrounding area.
On Saturday, November 19th Garden Ridge Lion Club volunteers, delivered a complete Thanksgiving dinner to 19 deserving families in the local area. Working through local elementary school nurses and local churches we accumulated the names of the families, their addresses, phone numbers, number of children and other information to develop maps and routes to deliver the food. A partial listing of food provided in two large boxes per family included: Yams, cut green beans, corn, cornbread mix, pies, cranberry sauce, stuffing mix, a 5-pound bag of apples and also potatoes, gravy , bread, dinner rolls, tortillas, and a Turkey, plus much more.
We are requesting volunteers for the packing and distribution of food baskets on Saturday, Nov 19 from 8AM until 12PM at the Jay Feibelman (Garden Ridge) Community Center. We could also use a few folks to assist pickup the food supplies and store it in the Community Center from 2:00-5:00PM. on Friday afternoon (Nov 18).
