Thanksgiving 2018

happy-thanks-giving-day-celebrations-poster_71IOfB_LHow could it already be that time of year again? It’s time to gather around with loved ones to celebrate and give thanks for the blessings in life.

In Longview, our community has a great history of working together to make it a great thanksgiving for all. Each year, our Thanksgiving Food Drive provides food to more than 1,000 families and give donations to several nonprofit partners as well. This year, we’ve approved applications from a little over 1,200 families!

So, now we need your help. We need your donations of food. We need your monetary donations to help buy food. We need you to volunteer by helping bring food from your business, church, neighborhood and family.

As always, we’ll be collecting food on the Monday before Thanksgiving. We’ll distribute food to approved applicants on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving (Please note, we are no longer accepting applications for 2018).

Food Drive Collection Day: Monday, November 19 from 2 – 5 p.m.
Food Box Distribution Day: Tuesday, November 20 from Noon – 3 p.m. (Food distribution is for pre-approved applicants only).

Thanksgiving Food Drive 2016

Hello friends!

It’s hard to believe that it is already time again to be thinking about Thanksgiving and the annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. The board has been meeting for the past several months and plans are already starting to come together to make 2016 another very successful year.

Please help rally your friends and neighbors to donate food or money for this worthy cause. Our goal is to provide the supplies for a wonderful Thanksgiving meal to as many less fortunate families as we possibly can. We can’t do it without you.

We will be collecting donations for the Thanksgiving Food Drive on Monday, November 21, 2016 at Maude Cobb Convention and Activity Complex. Distribution to pre-approved families will occur the next day.

Be Thankful at Brookshire’s and Super 1 Foods

For many years, Brookshire’s and Super 1 Foods have been great partners with the Longview Thanksgiving Food Drive. They help with logistics, acquiring food at great prices, volunteering, advertising, and so much more.  They even make it easy for you to donate to the Food Drive as you are checking out your groceries. Even if it isn’t your normal grocery stop, we hope you will join us in saying thanks to Brookshire’s and Super 1 Foods for their commitment to helping the local community. image

We’re thankful it’s November Again! Bring on the 2015 Food Drive!

Fall is our favorite time of year. The weather starts cooling. The leaves start turning. And lots of people start thinking: how can we help our community during the holidays?

We want to say thank you to everyone who chooses to help through the Longview Thanksgiving Food Drive. Every year, we are able to provide food supplies to over 1,000 local families in the Longview, Texas area. We can only do this because generous people do the great things that generous people do. We are thankful that people donate food during the food drive; kids are able to donate through drives at their schools; neighbors participate in the Scouting for Food effort; patrons to Super 1 Foods can donate ready-made bags.

In short, thank you Longview! We’re thankful for your continued support for the past 31 years and we are looking forward to another really awesome November in 2015. Let’s make this great!
