YMCA Thanksgiving Food Drive

Nov 15th 2021 - Nov 24th 2021

Young boy and woman volunteering

Help a family in need by providing a Thanksgiving meal! We will deliver donations to our local food pantry before Thanksgiving Day.

All South Sound YMCAs are hosting a Thanksgiving food drive between November 15th-24th. Donations at the Shelton Family YMCA will be distributed to Saints Pantry and the Shelton High Schools’ Family Support Center. Donations at our Thurston facilities will be distributed to SafePlace and Olympia Kitchen Collective.

Shop: Using the recommended food suggestion list, visit your local grocery store to shop for items.
Encourage: Involve the kids! This is a great way to encourage a lifelong spirit of giving and social responsibility.
Deliver: Bring food donations to your local Y.

Share: SPREAD THE WORD: Tell your family and friends about our Thanksgiving Food Drive and ask them to consider donating!
