Free 1000 Turkey Box Giveaway for the Community

Richmond, California; November 24, 2020 – “We are ready to give out 1000 Thanksgiving Food Bags”, exclaims Mission Director, John Anderson. “These ‘Boxes of Hope’ will help those forced to make the hard decision of either paying rent, utilities, or putting a traditional Thanksgiving meal on their table.”

1000 ‘Boxes of Hope’ to Families in our Neighborhood Given By the Bay Area Rescue Mission: The Bay Area Rescue Mission has upheld this beautiful tradition for 40 years. Thanks to our donors’ generosity, we supply the entire Thanksgiving meal to our neighborhoods in need. Our goal is for families to enjoy quality time while eating a yummy meal during the holiday season. Our desire is this will be one less thing the families in need will have to worry about, especially during this challenging season of COVID. This event gives the Bay Area Rescue Mission a sense of belonging and a way to express the importance of family.

When: Tuesday, November 24, 2020, from (9 am-11 pm)
Where: Parking Lot – 123 Macdonald Ave Richmond, CA
