The first ever Friendsgiving was a huge success this weekend, as LINC members brought some serious energy and muscle to help us close out the Thanksgiving Project packing!
All told, volunteers packed 150,000 pounds of food into 5,500 bags of Thanksgiving groceries, which will allow 25,000 individuals to enjoy a holiday meal next week!
The Thanksgiving Project is a favorite tradition for all of us at United Way – a real hands-on, feel-good volunteer event, and we always have a blast sharing it with so many volunteers and members of our community!
