Thanksgiving Boxes for Lincoln County

I am writing to make a request for a reporter to come visit us in Newport at First American Title to show how our county is living United! Several of the local stores, and community groups are coming together to put our 3rd annual Gobble, Gobble, Goodness Thanksgiving Boxes together for the less fortunate of Lincoln County. We typically raise money to purchase most of the stuff that we need for the boxes such as turkey’s, rolls, yams, green beans, pumpkin pie, stuffing, margarine, gravy packages, roasting pans but we also get help from Darigold who is donating 100 milks and we have 5 pies being donated from La Mason Bakery, $80 gift certificate from JC Market in Newport, a very generous 80 roasting pans from JC Market in Toledo, Grocery Outlet will also be a making a very generous donation of 100 items that are yet unknown at this time. We have several other donation requests out that have not yet made it back but I am sure it will all come together on Wednesday November 26th when we open up our office and give those boxes out to the less fortunate people of our county. Girl Scout Brownie troop 10360 has also committed to helping us get all the banana boxes that we need to put everything in. They are also having a food drive to get canned goods. It is definitely a community effort. It is just a matter of getting everyone involved, especially in this economic time. Thanks so much for any help you can give. Please do not hesitate to call me 265-8591 with any questions. Please see our attached pictures from last year as well as our ad on our local channel 21.
