Embrace Thanksgiving

As we are preparing for the joy this festive season brings, many our friends, co-workers and neighbors are struggling to make ends meet as we enter the holidays. We are seeking assistance to deliver a memorable holiday season to 200 families we serve by providing them with Thanksgiving Dinner, and we need your help. Most of these dinners will go to participants in the Pathways to Home program, which for the last decade, has prioritized immediate shelter and long-term stability for families with children who are homeless or on the verge of homelessness.

Requested food donations include:

  • Gravy
  • Stuffing mix
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Powdered potatoes
  • Green beans and/or corn
  • Pumpkin pie
  • Gift cards to local grocery stores to cover the costs of a turkey

We are humbled each year by the generosity of our community. Your support helps ease any holiday-related stress for families already experiencing a difficult situation.Supporters who wish to make a financial donation can do so online here, or shop directly from Embrace Families’ Amazon charity list at www.bit.ly/embracethanksgiving.

Food donations for Thanksgiving meal baskets can also be dropped off at the Embrace Families office, 2921 South Orlando Drive, Suite 150, Sanford between Nov. 1 and Nov. 19 during normal business hours.
