Carver's annual Thanksgiving food basket appeal

For many in our community with stressed budgets and financial challenges, an ample Thanksgiving dinner just isn’t possible. Please help Carver provide 100 families with food baskets that include a turkey and all the trimmings. This annual Thanksgiving food basket program is conducted at the Carver Community Center at 7 Academy Street, Norwalk starting next Wednesday and ends on Wednesday, November 22. Thanksgiving reminds us, with food and friends, how blessed we are. For decades, Carver has provided food baskets for many hundreds of local families. Shopping for the food, filling the baskets and offering them to our neighbors allows us to share ourselves as well as our food. This annual offering truly puts community into the George Washington Carver Community Center.

How you can Help:
