The North Strand Helping Hand will be distributing Christmas Dinner meal fixings for those in need.

Presently we are scheduled to provide 323 families and 76 housebound seniors with meals. Providing food to 400 families requires us to either purchase or have the groceries donated to fulfill these orders.

The turkeys are ordered. We have also received the canned vegetables through donations from various food drives. However, below you will find a list of items that we need to complete our orders.

  • Cans or packets of turkey gravy
  • Box stuffing
  • Canned cranberries

If you are able to assist us in our endeavor to serve the less fortunate among us, we are grateful. Please have all donations collected to us by Thursday, December 13, 2012.

We will be putting the meal packages together on Friday, December 14th. We will be distributing the meals on Monday, December 17th. If you have a large quantity and would like for us to make arrangements to pick-up, please contact us.

For your convenience you may also drop off items at the NMB Chamber of Commerce or the NMB Aquatic & Fitness Center.

As always, we are grateful for your untiring support to help us. Thank you for all you do and for making this Christmas a special one for all people.
