Food Donation Drive this Holiday Season

The holiday season is quickly approaching! This grateful time of year allows us to rejoice and be glad in the moment, and we look forward to continuing to serve our neighbors. Your help this holiday season will provide delicious Thanksgiving dinners to those in the local homeless community. Our goal is to build complete Thanksgiving meal boxes for families in need as well as provide food to serve at the mission during our busiest time of year. Gather a group of friends, family, coworkers, and school members to organize a food drive and collect items or give a monetary donation. We are beyond blessed by the support of our donors to ensure a positive holiday experience for our guests and neighbors in need.

Thanksgiving Food Drive Items

Help us fill our Family Feast boxes and stock our pantry at Shelter KC with the following items:

  • Stuffing
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Gravy mix packets
  • Canned vegetables (corn, green beans, peas, etc.)
  • Canned fruit (peaches, pears, etc.)
  • Canned yams
  • Canned cranberry sauce

A turkey voucher, fresh produce, and perishable items will be added to these boxes (thanks to a generous donor) for an abundant Thanksgiving dinner for a family of 4.

Ways to Support

Your involvement will bring food to the tables of hundreds of families in need as well as help feed the community at Shelter KC. Groups and individuals can support the mission of Shelter KC to provide lasting memories and flavorful meals this holiday season and beyond. You can also support by giving your time and talents by volunteering with Thanksgiving meal prep, meal delivery, and more.
