In partnership with West End Neighborhood House, the Wilmington Jaycees are trying to provide a full Thanksgiving meal to 500 families in need around the greater Wilmington, Delaware area this year.
To make donating even easier, we have a PayPal link below where you can sponsor a turkey or a complete Thanksgiving box.
To make a food contribution in lieu of a financial donation, we have set up an Amazon Wish List! Click the Donate Supplies button below to order items via Amazon. Purchases made through this Amazon wish list will be delivered directly to West End Neighborhood House where the food baskets will be assembled and handed out in time for Thanksgiving.*
We collect many of the food items during our food drives – Saturday November 16th Giant on Concord Pike and Sunday, November 17th at Zingo’s in Pike Creek. The remaining items and the turkeys and rolls are purchased with funds generously donated by local businesses and individuals.
You may also drop off food at West End Neighborhood House up until Thursday, November 21, 2019.
Each Thanksgiving Food Basket contains…
– canned corn – canned green vegetables – canned fruit – canned sweet potatoes or yams – cranberry – gravy – boxed dessert mix (cookies or brownies) – stuffing – instant mashed – potatoes – dinner rolls – frozen turkey

*Any deliveries scheduled after November 23rd, 2019 will go towards West End Neighborhood House’s emergency food pantry as they will miss the deadline to be sorted and included in this year’s Thanksgiving Food Basket Program. Your donation will still be appreciated and will go to families in need this Holiday season.
