It might be two months away, but Thanksgiving preparations have already begun at the Goodman Community Center.
The center’s Thanksgiving Basket Drive has become a fall tradition in the Shenk-Atwood neighborhood, said a press release. The event has been going for a decade.
Every year, groceries are collected to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving meal, including a turkey, for about 1,000 families in need. The baskets are distributed to families at the Goodman Community Center from Nov. 17 to 20.
Those interested in donating food and money can call 608-241-1574 x249.
Registration is open for Thanksgiving Baskets until Oct. 15. To register, call the Goodman Community Center at 608-241-1574 x249. Families may also register at the center or through the Fritz Food Pantry.
Need is expected to exceed supply, so families are encouraged to register soon.
