Concord, California – Monument Crisis Center aims to provide 1,000 local families a Thanksgiving dinner for the holidays and needs the community’s help “setting the table.”
“Thanks to generous financial contributions towards turkeys from individual donors, Wells Fargo Foundation and Mt. Diablo Resource Recovery, MCC hopes to complete the meal with all the trimmings,” Executive Director Sandra Scherer said Friday in a news release.
The goal is to provide each family a “trimmings bag” consisting of canned cranberries, vegetables, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cornbread and cake mix.
“Together with a frozen turkey this will provide a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner for a local family,” Scherer said.
Donations can be brought to Monument Crisis Center, 1990 Market St. in Concord, during the following drop-off times: Monday – Thursday, Nov. 16-19 from 9 a.m. to noon, with additional hours Wednesday and Thursday, Nov. 18-19 from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.
