Help us Feed 100+ People for the Holidays

by Alana Allen | November 13th, 2013

Thanksgiving Food Giveaway 2013Did you know each night one in five of us will go to bed hungry in North Carolina; these are our friends, family, and neighbors—and most of all this is our community. Within the city of Greensboro, we are ranked number 4 for having the highest food hardship rate nationwide. Sadly, this is major reality to a lot of people in our city and they need our help.

My organization, I Am A Queen and AskTani.com have partnered together to join an amazing cause led by Professionals Divas to feed 1,000 families for Thanksgiving. Through this special initiative, Professional Divas has selected cities in the U.S. to join together to impact their communities during this holiday season. Our area of focus for this cause is our beloved city of Greensboro with a goal to feed 100+ families.

On Saturday, November 23, we will host our Thanksgiving Food Giveaway at the Windsor Recreation Center, located at 1601 E. Lee St., Greensboro from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. where we intend to have raised enough monies and collected enough food to feed 100+ families. We will open the doors at this event for families to come in to pick up boxes of frozen turkeys and nonperishable items to prepare their holiday dinner.

We are looking for the following donations to fill over 100 boxes to give to families:

  • Frozen Turkeys
  • Cans of Green Beans and Corn
  • Cans of Sweet Potatoes/Yams
  • Packets of Gravy Mix
  • Corn Bread Mix
  • Stuffing Mix
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Mash Potatoes Mix
  • Macaroni & Cheese
