This program provides a Thanksgiving and Christmas food box to families so that they will not have to worry about what they will eat on Thanksgiving or Christmas but instead focus on spending time gathered around the table as a family. This would involve helping people correctly enter their information into the computer. We often have elderly that are not familiar with computer and sometimes people who are unable to read. We desire to serve them without limits. We would ask volunteers to engage with them in conversation while helping them complete the needed information.
