Parker Task Force seeks Thanksgiving donations

Posted

The Parker Task Force food bank is seeking donations of holiday food baskets so local families in need can prepare Thanksgiving meals in their homes.

Food baskets should feed a family of four to six, and contain a complete Thanksgiving meal — frozen turkey, aluminum turkey pan, stuffing, canned green beans, canned cream of mushroom soup, butter, dinner rolls, gravy (packet or jar), canned fruit, potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, pie and Cool Whip.

These baskets or boxes can be dropped off at the Parker Task Force buildling at 19105 Longs Way between 9 a.m. and noon Saturday, Nov. 10; Tuesday, Nov. 13; Wednesday, Nov. 14; or Friday, Nov. 16.

The food bank also seeks monetary donations in any amount.

“The holiday season is a vital time to raise money for all nonprofits,” Parker Task Force chairman Steve Budnack said in a news release. “Any additional funds collected during Thanksgiving will be used to help provide limited financial assistance to prevent eviction or utility shut-off through the winter months.”

Checks made payable to the Parker Task Force (memo: Thanksgiving), 19105 Longs Way, Parker, CO 80134. You may also make a Thanksgiving contribution using PayPal through the Parker Task Force website, www.parkertaskforce.org.

The task force can also use gift cards to local grocery stores to purchase perishable food for the food bank — for example, milk, eggs, cheese, meat and produce.

For more information about the Thanksgiving efforts, call the Parker Task Force at 303-841-3460 or send an email to foodbank@parkertaskforce.org.

Thanksgiving dinners are just one of the services provided by the Parker Task Force, a nonprofit organization operated solely by dedicated volunteers providing short-term support, including a food bank and limited financial assistance to those in need throughout the Parker, Elizabeth and Franktown communities.
