Thanksgiving Project November 14th-18th
As we enter fall, United Way is kicking into full swing with our Thanksgiving Project preparations. This year’s event will provide Thanksgiving meals to over 6,500 local families on November 18, 2017. With the support of our local community, United Way aims to donate 650,000 pounds of food to 25,000 people who need it most from 10 of our communities.
3 Ways to Help:
Just $50 will feed a family of three or more. To give, please donate online by visiting
Run a food drive for a particular food item (see list) or purchase items directly by visiting
After donating, individuals, families and groups can help pre-pack Thanksgiving care packages during the week of November 14-17 or distribute meal kits on Saturday, November 18. Volunteer sites include Dorchester, Lynn, the South End, the South Shore and Merrimack Valley.
We hope to create more standard packages for all families by collecting donations of a single item during food drives. For example, ask all your co-workers to bring in a can of cranberry sauce
