Each year, our volunteer group, Yes We CAN! Food Drives, reaches out to our community to help us provide a happier Thanksgiving for families in need by asking for donated turkeys so they, too, can share a holiday dinner. The three food pantries of Arm in Arm in Princeton and Trenton offer free food and nutritional advice monthly to 2,500 adults and 1,000 children with low income, and those who are unemployed, handicapped, veterans, and the elderly. Each year the number in need grows.

This year, in addition to asking you to donate frozen turkeys at our turkey drive on Saturday, November 11, at the West Windsor Farmers’ Market, we are requesting you also donate the turkey “fixings.”

Our volunteers will be at our Yes We CAN! table from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., collecting potatoes, gravy packages, stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, pie ingredients, and more. If you’d rather offer a cash donation, we will happily shop for you. My specialty, I might add!

Look for our Yes We CAN! banner on November 11 at the West Windsor Farmers’ Market, located on Vaughn Drive. Parking is free. See you there.
