Thanksgiving Drive

Each year we hold a holiday food drive in November.  Over 400 schools, businesses, government agencies, local clubs and organizations in Sarasota and Manatee counties participate in the food drive.  Each year the food drive grows to meet the ever-increasing need in our community. 

Last year we collected 72 tons of food and over 2,300 turkeys that were given away free in time for Thanksgiving. This is a huge event, relying upon hundreds of volunteers to help coordinate, manage, sort and distribute the food.

This year our goal is to continue to grow with more participating locations and collect more food than ever before.  You can help!  Visit us at to find out how.
