For many, Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate family and gratitude. Family Support Services began the annual tradition of providing Thanksgiving meal boxes to Bay Area families in need with our Thanksgiving Build-A-Meal project. Due to the onsite of the COVID-19 pandemic, Family Support Services transitioned to providing our families with $75 grocery store gift cards, in order to adhere to CDC guidelines. This tradition continues to make a lasting and positive impact on our community.
If you are planning to make a monetary contribution to the Thanksgiving Program or would like to donate a $75 gift card, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may schedule a gift card drop-off to our Oakland office (address in footer), weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Please arrange your drop-off by November 4, 2022. Prior to the Thanksgiving holiday, Family Support Services hosts a drive-through event that allows our program families to pick up their gift cards. We will ensure that your donation reaches our families in time to shop and prepare for their holiday celebration!
On Thanksgiving Day, when you sit down with your family to celebrate the bounty in your life, another local family will be celebrating thanks to your generosity!
