The Fall is a busy time at Friend, Inc.!
In November and December, we give a turkey and a Holiday dinner box to each of our families enrolled in Food Pantry. The dinner box comes from schools and churches, and if you are interested in providing a dinner box, more details are found here:

If you would like to donate money for the purchase of turkeys, money or GIANT gift cards can be donated to Friend, Inc. We can then purchase turkeys at a discount to hand out to the clients.
Also at Christmastime, we provide gifts for children of our clients. Any groups or individuals wanting to provide gifts, may do so by contacting us and requesting a certain number of children. We will send you a label for each child with their sizes and interests on.
In addition to everything above, we also have a Salvation Army Kettle where we raise money for the Salvation Army that helps our clients pay emergency bills. If you wish to help us by taking an hour or so to “ring the bell”, please contact us and we will schedule you. The Salvation Army season runs from the Friday after Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve.
