Eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich should not be an option at Thanksgiving.  Sadly, that is a reality for many, and we at Children’s Restoration Network have a goal of providing a bountiful Thanksgiving dinner with all of the trimmings for thousands of children and mothers living in group homes and shelters in our community.  Please help us collect non-perishable food items and gift cards to help with our goal!

Our Thanksgiving Food Drive kicks off in October and runs through November 16th. We need volunteers to organize food drives in their offices, neighborhoods, churches and social clubs.  We can provide collection boxes, flyers, and posters to help promote your food drive.  We will also gladly accept individual donations throughout the campaign which can be dropped off to our office.  No donation is too small!

Here is a list of items that would be the most helpful to our drive:

  • $15-25 dollar gift cards (to buy turkeys, milk, butter, fresh vegetables, etc.)
  • Canned vegetables
  • Boxed potatoes and rice
  • Boxed or bagged stuffing mix
  • Baking mixes and condiments
  • Breakfast items (cereal, oatmeal, granola bars)
  • Canned gravy or gravy mixes
  • Canned fruit
  • Pasta/pasta sauce
  • Meal starters
  • Peanut Butter & Jelly

Help us give the homeless children of Atlanta a delicious holiday meal to enjoy on Thanksgiving and stock their pantries for the holidays!
