Silver Key needs your help to fill Bountiful Bags for Thanksgiving throughout the entire month of October! For more than 20 years, Silver Key has invit ed the community to help us make the holidays special for the seniors we serve and this year is no different. Our goal is to fill 1,000 bags with all the trimmings for a memorable Thanksgiving meal for the seniors and their families. When you are shopping for your family, add a few items to your bag for seniors in need.
Every month, 1,000 seniors come through Silver Key’s pantry, receiving an allotment of food to help their dollars go further. The Bountiful Bags project provides these seniors and their families with Thanksgiving meal fixings in November. Without the community’s support, many of our clients would not have a Thanksgiving meal.
Items needed are:
- Cranberry Sauce: Whole Berry or Jellied, 14 or 16 oz. cans
- Dessert dry mix or canned pie filling
- Green Beans: 14.5 oz. cans
- Instant Mashed Potatoes
- Dry Stuffing
- Turkey Gravy Dry-Mix: 0.87 (7/8) oz. packets
- Yams / Sweet Potatoes: 29 oz. cans
Donations can be dropped off at Silver Key at 1605 S. Murray Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO 80916, Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. until Nov 1. For more information about the Bountiful Bags project please call Laurie Onstott at 719-884-2318.
