Say thank you to those who have to work on Thanksgiving Day such as police officers, fire fighters, convenience store employees, nursing home employees and more! We will stuff and deliver 250-300 brown bagged lunches to area businesses on Thanksgiving morning.
Donate a new and unwrapped toy at one of the Charleston area’s many drop-off locations!
