As the leaves turn golden and the air grows crisp, the season of Thanksgiving is upon us. It’s a time for family, friends, and most importantly, giving back to the community. This year, Second Harvest Food Bank (Second Harvest) and Galion City Schools are joining forces once again to serve up a hearty helping of community spirit. The two organizations are collaborating to provide 500 Thanksgiving meals to residents of Crawford County.

Be a Part of Something Bigger

Volunteers are the backbone of any community event, and this Thanksgiving drive is no exception. Those who sign up can expect to take on various roles that are crucial to the event’s success. Tasks include loading boxes of food and non-food items, assisting in the outdoor drive-thru mobile pantry setting, registering families as they arrive, and directing traffic.

Note: This volunteer opportunity is open to high school students and older. Upon arrival, volunteers are advised to check in with the Volunteer Relations Staff.

More Than Just a Meal

The significance of this event extends beyond the sumptuous Thanksgiving meals that will be distributed. It’s about community engagement, fostering a sense of belonging, and making a tangible impact in the fight against hunger. Your support and participation can make a world of difference in someone’s life.
