The organization collects canned goods, fresh produce, fruits and all the fixings for the whole Thanksgiving dinner experience for our families. The agency partners with local businesses and elected officials for the donation of Turkeys that will complete a Thanksgiving Dinner. Through this project our volunteers are given the opportunity to share in the spirit of giving so that others may participate in and enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal with their families.
Since the implementation of this program, VELA has serviced over 800 families. The Families are identified by our community partners, schools and other community based organizations.
