Thanksgiving Food Baskets

Every year Holy Name Parish collects a variety of food to provide Thanksgiving Meal Baskets for those in need in our neighborhood.  To accomplish this, we ask those in our parish to bring canned food items or other types of food as noted below and leave it in the sacristy by the exit doors.  You can do this anytime up until Monday, November 21st.  The following is a suggested list for donations by last name.  (Doing it this way enables a more even distribution of food.)


A-B        Dry Milk, Gravy (canned or mixed)

C-D       Coffee, Hot Chocolate

E-F        Canned Pumpkin, Evaporated Milk

G-H       Canned Vegetables, Cranberry Sauce

I-J         Brownie Mix/Frosting

K-L        Potatoes(fresh)-After 11/18 please

M-Mc     Baked Beans, Jelly


      N-O       Cereal

      P-Q       Canned Fruit, Stuffing

      R-S        Dried Potatoes, Stuffing

      T-U        Dry Milk, Canned Vegetables

We are also accepting monetary donations for turkeys.  If you would like to donate, please send donations to the Rectory in an envelope labeled “Thanksgiving Turkeys”.  Our parishioners have always responded so generously to this cause, and we thank you for your thoughtfulness and caring!
