The Tri-Community Food Bank (TCFB) will be a busy place for the next few months. Our wonderful volunteers will run holiday programs and assist with other special projects.
Emergency type, non-washable, single use blankets will be distributed from our lobby during the month of October. Some of our clients are challenged with housing issues such as leaky windows and doors. One potential use of these blankets is to provide extra insulation around windows and doors during the colder months.
Each family that comes to the TCFB in November will receive a warm, soft blanket along with their regular emergency food box. We will distribute, to more than 250 of our client families, the makings of a complete Thanksgiving dinner including turkey, stuffing, vegetables, pies and other trimmings on Sunday, November 19.
Christmas hams, sides and desserts will be on the menu for our families in December. Clients will be picking up the items for their Christmas dinners at TCFB on Sunday, December 17. Also, in December, we will have a small Christmas Shop where eligible clients can choose toys for the kids.
Looking Ahead to 2024
January and July are Dental Hygiene months at the Tri-Community Food Bank. In addition to our regular monthly hygiene offering in January and July each family will also receive one tube of toothpaste for the family, and a toothbrush for each family member.
