Urgent request: Thanksgiving basket donations down

With Thanksgiving around the corner and basket deliveries beginning Saturday, the Goodman Community Center has put out an urgent request for more basket donations. Donations of food, or money to purchase food, are needed.

While donated canned goods go directly into the baskets, financial donations are used to buy perishable items like turkeys, dairy products, fresh vegetables, and canned goods in bulk (at discounted rates) to fill in the gaps.

For a list of canned foods still needed, click on www.goodmancenter.org for updated daily totals. Donations can also be dropped off at the Goodman Community Center as soon as possible, but preferably by Saturday, Nov. 18 to ensure they get packed in baskets.
