Ashland Coffee and Tea, in collaboration with NewFound Families and Connecting Hearts will be hosting a Thanksgiving Dinner at 5pm for young people who came out of or are in the foster care system without families with whom they can spend this special day.
We will also open our doors to others who are without family or means for celebrating Thanksgiving!
We will be looking for volunteers to help us serve them and provide covered dishes.
In addition, we would love to get some musicians that might like to volunteer to join the stage for some entertainment.
We would like each youth to leave with a new backpack as well. And, we will be collecting things like warm socks, PJs, blankets, soap, shampoos, toothbrushes/toothpaste, etc so they can fill their bags (homemade cookies would be nice, too). All personal products should be for adults as these are young adults over 16.
Clothing and hygiene items can be dropped off anytime to Ashland Coffee & Tea, but food should be dropped off on Thanksgiving between 3 and 5pm or on Wednesday between 12-3pm. We are also accepting donations for those who don't have time to cook or shop. Click here to donate.
If you have a heart for kids and would like to help in any way, please sign-up here.
