A Thanksgiving to Remember

What clients received last year in our Thanksgiving grocery distribution.

This year, as we did last year, Target Hunger is hosting a very special Thanksgiving Distribution. Families in the communities we serve struggle daily with the cost of groceries, so when special holidays come each year, it can be even more difficult to afford the special products associated with the holidays. Thanksgiving, the most food-centric holiday of the year, is certainly no different. Every family has their own special traditions on Thanksgiving, whether you have a big turkey dinner or a small non-bird focused meal, it’s always about food.

When food becomes difficult to afford, these holidays become less exciting and more anxiety-inducing. We believe that no family should have to stress about food during the holiday season, so we’re doing a very special Thanksgiving Grocery Delivery for our clients complete with a turkey!

Thanks to The Embassy of the State of Qatar to the United States and other donors who will help provide Thanksgiving meals for 1,100 families in our northeast and east Houston service area. We are incredibly grateful for the continuous generosity. You too can get involved in providing hope to families in need!

Join us in Giving Hope

We are so excited to be doing this for the second year in a row, but we can’t do it without your help! We need 150 volunteer drivers to help us deliver food on Saturday, November 20th. This is a fun way to give back this holiday season alongside friends, family, and colleagues. All deliveries will be contactless to ensure everyone’s safety. Volunteers will commit to delivering food along a set route to about 4-5 families. It’s a simple moment that will make a huge difference to the families we serve.

Wondering what the day will look like? Here’s a brief outline of what you’ll do:

Volunteers ready to make their deliveries!

  1. Sign-up and commit to volunteering at a scheduled time.
  2. On Saturday, come to our warehouse (1260 Shotwell St) to pick up your assigned delivery route and food at your scheduled time between 9-11 am.
  3. Deliver food to your assigned families.
  4. Smile, because you just made someone’s Thanksgiving extra special!

It’s that simple! If you’re interested in volunteering, you can sign-up here! If you would like more information, please reach out to our Volunteer Manager, Sean Nickelberry at 281-913-9423 or volunteer@targethunger.org

We also couldn’t do it without the support of donors like you. Every dollar goes a very long way, especially during the holiday season. If you can’t volunteer with us, get involved by donating to help a family in need this holiday season! We are so appreciative of incredible donors like you!
