Casseroles for St. John’s Hospice – Collected 3rd Monday of every Month

Help Bring the Holidays H.O.M.E. by donating Thanksgiving Turkey Baskets!

Your donation will enable formerly homeless individuals and low-income families within the Project HOME community to have a hearty holiday meal!  Please be sure to include the following in your family Thanksgiving Baskets:

  • 15 pound frozen Turkey (wrapped or sealed in plastic)
  • 4 cans of various seasonal vegetables
  • 2 boxes of stuffing mix
  • 5-pound bag of potatoes
  • 2 cans of cranberry sauce
  • 2 jars of applesauce
  • 1 jar of gravy
  • dinner rolls
  • 1 non-frozen pie

 ALSO – Project H.O.M.E. expressed a need for additional frozen turkeys – no basket required!

If you have any questions or are interested in participating in Project H.O.M.E.’s Turkey Basket Drive, please email Pat Gregg at or Martha Van Auken at with your departmental or individual name and the number of baskets and/or frozen turkeys you will be donating.  

Packing the Thanksgiving Dinners in a plastic tote/bin with a lid makes transporting them much easier.
