Did anyone donate to a food bank for thanksgiving? Or sponsor a family? I want to look into sponsoring a family but i dont know where to look, i also want to for xmas. We dont have much, but there are plenty that have less.

    I put some things in the food bank bin at hannafords when we can. What area are you in again? There is a food pantry that we go to in Nottingham at a church and they may be able to set you up with an actual family to sponsor. I was so sad to see a new lady that came last tuesday leave after meat part because she had 7 small children with her all looking at the bakery stuff and another women yelled at her only 1 family member was allowed to stand at the tables, so she left before it was time to take anything because people were rude to her. Broke my heart but i couldnt get her to stay :(

    There was a box for the Food Bank at my work and I did donate to it. We always give change to the salvation army too.

     The only way I've ever known to sponsor a family for Thanksgiving is thru church.

    At work we sponsor a family thru HAVEN, for Christmas. HAVEN is a program for abused women/moms.
