Project Thanksgiving


As we prepare for the 31st year of Project Thanksgiving™ with our partners CBS 12 News and the Palm Beach County Food Bank, our goal is to raise money and food supplies to provide our neighbors in need with a hearty, holiday meal.

Did you know?

  • It only takes $20 to feed a family of 4.
  • Over 181,000 residents don’t know where their next meal will come from.
  • 52,000 of those individuals are children.

For many hard working individuals and families in our community, putting food on the table is hard every day. During the holidays, it’s even harder. Here are three easy ways to make a difference this holiday season!

Donate to Project Thanksgiving

We hope that you will make a gift to Project Thanksgiving™ today to help us ensure that everyone in Palm Beach County can enjoy a holiday meal. It only takes $20 to help feed a family of four, and it’s easy to contribute!

Host a Food Drive

A great way to help our neighbors in need this holiday season is hosting a food drive with your colleagues, friends or family. This year we are also offering a virtual food drive option! You may use our Amazon Wishlist or Target Wishlist to send food items to the Palm Beach County Food Bank. If you would like to host a food drive for Project Thanksgiving, please view the flier or contact Nubia Ortega for more information.

Volunteer to Help us Sort Donated Food

We are looking for volunteers to help us sort and pack the donated food items at the Palm Beach County Food Bank on November 12, 2021. We will be following CDC guidelines and spreading joy! Two shifts are available: 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm. RSVP Here.

Thank you for your generosity!
