The San Jose Meals Financial institution remains to be accepting Thanksgiving donations
SAN JOSE (KRON) – The coronavirus pandemic has devastated multiple industries, resulting in layoffs and minimal job prospects. Families seek help from food banks to keep their pantries in stock.
The Sacred Heart Community Service in San Jose feeds thousands and could use your help.
Demone Carter, a Sacred Heart employee, says they are still accepting donated turkeys for their community’s Thanksgiving tables on Wednesday.
“To have $ 100 worth of groceries, a turkey, a ham, people really appreciate that,” Carter said.
He said their Thanksgiving distribution is about £ 50 per family.
People in need can pick up food on Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The grocery bank also accepts toiletries, blankets, sleeping bags, tents and tarpaulins as donations, as well as money to fund further distributions.
“We want to show here at Sacred Heart that poverty doesn’t happen to someone else,” Carter said. “This happens to your neighbors and it is our responsibility as a community to come together.”
