Thanksgiving Distribution 2018
Friday, November 16, 2018
1401 Mira Vista Blvd., Plano TX 75093
The Storehouse of Collin County will be distributing turkeys and meal ingredients through our Seven Loaves Food Pantry again this Thanksgiving.
Our dear friends at Sports Value Consulting have generously sponsored 1,500 turkeys for this year's distribution. Thank you Sports Value Consulting! In addition, Whataburger will also be providing insulated bags for our distribution this year. MYCON will be providing lighting for the evening.
Due to construction and a lack of storage space this year, we will not be receiving and storing food donations. Instead, we are partnering with North Texas Food Bank to provide each family with a box of holiday ingredients.
Thank you North Texas Food Bank for helping support this effort!
The cost of the turkeys are covered thanks to Sports Value Consulting. You can help by sponsoring the cost of a Thanksgiving box - $20 will provide the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal!
All the turkeys and food will be delived to our location on the day of distribution. This helps us solve our problem with a lack of storage and work space!
As usual, we will have many volunteers helping with welcoming our neighbors to our campus, managing traffic flow, and loading the turkey and boxes into the neighbors' vehicles. It will be a team effort!
This is a wonderful opportunity to show our neighbors how much we care during this holiday season.
Unlike previous years, we will not be receiving any thanksgiving food items donations. We encourage you to bring donation items to other local agencies this year.
Please keep in mind that volunteers spots are very limited this year since we have significantly simplified our processes. We would definitely love to have you back next year in the event that we are unable to accept your volunteer request this year. To volunteer, sign up via Sign Up Genius.
Neighbors (Food Pantry Clients)
Neighbors receiving food from Seven Loaves and clothing from Joseph's Coat can pick up Thanksgiving Meal Vouchers from now until November 7, 2018. Please follow the instructions provided for the event on the voucher in order to ensure smooth traffic flow during the day of distribution.
Plano ISD Families
The Storehouse will be the distribution point for Plano Mayor Harry’s Food 4 Kids program again this year. Hundreds of families with children attending Plano ISD schools receive food over the holiday season from Seven Loaves each year.
Thanks to Mayor Harry's program in partnership with the North Texas Food Bank, each year:
- Students receive a weekly backpack equipped with food and snacks to help them with food insecurities over weekends and exended breaks.
- Plano residents participate in a peanut butter drive in conjunction with National Hunger Action Month every September to collect peanut butter for local food pantries.
- Plano ISD students and their families receive additional food support over holiday seasons.
For our Thanksgiving Distribution, we invite Plano ISD-issued voucher holders to come on Saturday, November 17 from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. if they are unable to come on Friday, November 16.
