Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner!

I think we can all agree that this year has been rough on many families. As we approach this holiday, it is not lost on us that some may not know if they will be able to provide a Thanksgiving dinner for their family. Elgin Lodge #117 AF & AM would like to assist in this time of need and provide 5 families with a do-it-yourself dinner to help bring some light through these dark times.

The boxes will include the following:

1 18lb (approx.) frozen Turkey

1 bag of stuffing

1 box of Mashed Potatoes

1 jar of gravy

2 cans of corn

2 cans of Sweet Potatoes

1 bag of mini marshmallows

2 cans of Cranberry Sauce

1 Apple/Pumpkin Pie w/ whip cream

1 bag of dinner rolls.

If you or someone you know are in need and would like to receive a box, please send me an email at Thank you and we hope you have a blessed holiday season. This is first come first serve as we only have 5 to give.
