Help Our Thanksgiving Dinner


Thanksgiving Dinner – On November 25th, our D&M family will be having Thanksgiving Dinner. This is a traditional meal for all those we serve. As you can imagine there is a lot of work and expense that goes into this celebration.

Please consider how you can help make this day a blessing to those we serve.

Here are a few ideas:

  • We need extra help cooking in the late afternoon.
  • We are looking for people who will donate a turkey or ham.

Contact to sign up to help cook make arrangements for pickup of a turkey or ham.

If you cannot make it this year or donate food, please consider a financial contribution here!

Give the gift of Christmas!

Season’s Greetings,

Please help us make Christmas possible for one of our D&M families. We have about 30 families of various sizes that will not have Christmas without our help his year. Please consider sponsoring a family. You get their wish list. You get to shop and wrap. One of our volunteers will pick up the gifts and deliver them to the family at our holiday party. This can be a great holiday project for a family, church group or co-workers.

Please contact for more details or to get your family’s wish list.We are looking for sponsors for each of these families.  If you sponsor a family you will receive their wish list with clothes sizes and needs.  We ask that you purchase a couple of items per person.  Please include the parents.  Family sizes range from one parent and child to five family members.

PS.  If you want to help but can’t sponsor a family at this time we will be accepting financial donations here to allow us to purchase new unwrapped toys for our Santa’s Workshop program
