Special Community Event – Thanksgiving Basket Drive

Nov. 14-18, Community Room
With renovations occurring at Amicable Church, a different location was needed for the Annual Thanksgiving Food Pantry in Tiverton.  Solution? Library space will be transformed into a “giving store” for area families in need. Sponsored and organized by Amicable Church, the Thanksgiving pantry represents a pooling of resources from area churches, businesses, farms, library patrons and individual donors, along with East Bay Community Action and dozens of volunteers, all working together to provide food for approximately 135 families, each to receive all items needed for a Thanksgiving meal with the trimmings, including a frozen turkey and locally grown produce. All distributions will occur on the culmination of the event on Saturday, November 18.
Specifically they are looking for:
Corn
Peas
Green Beans
Cranberry Sauce
Stuffing
Gravy (pre-made in a can or jar)
