A Thanksgiving Tradition Continues

Hello Ridgefield Neighbor,

We are a group of local Ridgefield residents who want to ensure that the children of our community have a good Thanksgiving dinner. To that end, since 1995, we have been collecting donations and putting together a Thanksgiving “basket” of food for local residents who ask for assistance at this time of year. Last year we helped 32 families have a Thanksgiving meal like the one listed below.

What started as a mission to teach our children the value of volunteerism, grew into an endeavor that brings those children back as adults to continue helping us serve this community.

Due to the rising food costs, we are seeking donations to continue this philanthropic tradition. We have received donations from the Ridgefield Lions, Friends of the Library, Teachers and other individuals. A typical basket consists of the following items and costs approximately $50.

A turkey

5-10 pounds of potatoes

Dressing

Corn

Beans

Gravy

Rolls

Milk

Pumpkin pie

Olives

Cranberry sauce

Whipped cream

Butter
