Each year in November, the Longview Thanksgiving Food Drive provides Thanksgiving food boxes to Longview families in need. This project is made possible thanks to the generous donations of people from throughout the community.
We will once again collect food and donations on the Monday before Thanksgiving, which this year is November 21, 2022 at the Maude Cobb Convention Center. Food will be distributed to approved recipients on Tuesday, November 22, 2022
We need your help to feed local needy families! Longview’s Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive last year fed more than 1,000 families, bringing the total number of families helped to more than 25,000 since the drive was started in 1985.
Many of the items, such as perishable items (turkeys, hens, etc.) must be committed and paid for early, so we can have them on the day of distribution. This however takes cash, and we depend on your donations to make this happen. All the monetary donations go directly to these purchases to assist in feeding area families in need. Our website is LongviewThanksgiving.com or Facebook.com/LongviewThanksgiving.
In addition to monetary donations, we also rely on donations of canned food items and the help of many volunteers collecting donations from throughout the community.
I hope that we can count on your support. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
We need your help to make this a great Thanksgiving. Please donate or volunteer.
