Would you like to spread a little holiday cheer this season? We’re seeking meal donations for the men, women and families in our many shelter and housing programs. There are so many ways you can give a precious gift this Thanksgiving. For more information on all of these opportunities and to schedule a donation, please contact Volunteer Specialist Anna Baker at email@example.com or 206-474-1071.
Drop off a side dish
Prepare and bring your favorite side dish to serve at one of our meals over Thanksgiving weekend. We need sides to serve at our meals on the following dates and locations:
Wednesday, Nov. 26 — Renton Veterans Center, drop-off time 4 pm
Thursday, Nov. 27 — Downtown Seattle locations, drop-off time 1 pm
Friday, Nov. 28 — Peter’s Place, Rainier Ave, drop-off time 9:30 am
Donate a Thanksgiving meal basket
We’re collecting meal baskets to serve up a festive holiday dinner for homeless and very low-income families. Your meal basket can include stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, vegetables, salad with dressing, beverages, dessert and of course a turkey and roasting pan. No basket necessary — your donation can be placed in a box, grocery or reusable bags. If you’d like to add your own special touch to your gift basket, go for it! We love when our donors are creative! We gladly accept gift cards to grocery stores to help families fill out their meal, but we can’t accept cash.
Drop-off dates will be:
Sunday, Nov. 23, location TBD
Monday, Nov. 24 at our Pioneer Square location (77 S Washington St)
Tuesday, Nov. 24 at Nyer Urness House in Ballard (1753 NW 56th St).
Donate a turkey
We’re also looking for uncooked turkeys to give to families and individuals in need. One turkey goes a long way! We will be collecting turkeys on Thursday, Nov. 20 at our Pioneer Square location and again during our meal basket collections dates listed above.
For questions, please Anna Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-474-1071. From our Compass family to yours, we wish you a very happy holiday!
