This year, instead of cooking & serving a Thanksgiving meal, LOV is partnering with Grocery Outlet and our community to provide all the fixings/items for a complete Thanksgiving meal for 250 families to prepare at home. These meals will be provided through people like you with Thanksgiving food sponsorships, donations, and – most important of all – community volunteering.
There are hundreds of volunteer spots to fill!
As a LOV Thanksgiving volunteer, you’ll help box and bag perishable and non-perishable items at LOV and at Newark Grocery Outlet. You can sign up to work at our Thanksgiving Ambassadors Table and help people get their boxes, turkey, and bags of fresh foods. . Shifts and dates for boxers and baggers are November 14th through November 21st , 10 a.m. – noon and 2-4 daily. Two-hour Ambassador shifts are November 18-22, 2:00 – 7:00 p.m. You can sign up for one or multiple shifts.
Looking for something a little different?
LOV is hosting a Family Volunteer event each Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to noon at our office – 8440 Central Ave., Suites A/B in Newark, CA. We’ll be making cards and small art projects to include in family meal bags, and filling party bags with family games and activity sheets, stickers, and candies to share on the big day. Call if you’d like to arrange a card making or goodie bag stuffing party at your home or office. Dates available are each Saturday, or by November 20th.
