We are excited to announce that our food drive for the 2017 Thanksgiving Blessings bags has begun! This is our third year delivering Thanksgiving meals to those in need in our community. You will find our boxes at various Dubuque locations where you can leave your food donations, including Resources Unite, Hy-Vee, McGraw-Hill, Cottingham & Butler and Q Casino.
We are specifically asking for the following non-perishable food items for the blessing bags to try and keep each bag consistent with items necessary for a Thanksgiving meal. Each bag needs the following items:
- 2 cans green beans
- 1 can sweet potatoes
- 1 can cranberry sauce
- 1 box stuffing
- 1 box instant mashed potatoes
- 2 cans gravy or gravy packets
- 1 package muffin or cornbread mix
- 1 box cake, brownie mix or similar dessert
- 1 container of instant ice tea or jug of pre-made ice tea
- 1 $15 Hy-Vee gift card (for the purchase of a turkey)
You can also help sponsor a family for just $25! If you or your company are interested in sponsoring a family, please drop off or send donations to Live Like Jack, 1900 JFK Road, Dubuque, IA 52002. Donations can also be made on our HOMEPAGE. Just look for the donate button at the bottom of the page.
THANK YOU for your support! We look forward to this year being a HUGE success!
