Community Night Donation
In our local Lisbon, Woodbine, and Mount Airy community many families, senior citizens, and children rely on our local food pantry in Woodbine for food, personal needs, and pet food. These families in our community do not always have the means to have a Thanksgiving dinner with their families and we want to help change that.
On November 22, 2019 we are having our 2nd Annual Community Night at Lisbon Elementary to sort and package 100 Thanksgiving meal baskets for people in our community. They will be distributed on Saturday, November 23, 2019 at our local food pantry, located at Morgan Chapel UMC in Woodbine.
Last year with the support of local businesses and our Lisbon ES family we were able to give 95 families a Thanksgiving meal. Because of our school's support they want to feed even more families this year and have increased the total to 100 families.
We are asking families of Lisbon Elementary to help in three ways:
Join us on November 22, 2019 to put the 100 baskets together, make a craft for the baskets, and spend time together to give others an opportunity to have a great Thanksgiving meal. Please RSVP so that we can plan accordingly.
Donate food listed below. Turkeys and bacon will be bought at the Mount Airy Meat Locker and perishable items (milk, butter, potatoes) will be purchased at local grocery stores. Please check the list of items needed and sign up here: SignUpGenius. Send the items to the school or bring them to PTA event or meeting by Wednesday, November 20, 2019 so we can be sure to have food for all the baskets.
Make a monetary or grocery gift card donation. This will be used to purchase any items not donated and the perishables. PayPal link above.
This is a great way for our students to not only give back, but to help our community and be thankful for what we have. Resources and information to help discuss this issue with your children are available on the SignUpGenius page and will be posted to our Facebook page. Family resources are available for those in need; please contact Mrs. Anoff directly. This information is not shared with the PTA or community.
Together we can give 100 families a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Details available HERE. Items needed include:
100 Boxes of Stuffing (Family Size) * 200 cans of Green Beans (Large) * 200 Cans of Corn (Large)
200 cans of Turkey Gravy * 100 Boxed Pancake Mix * 100 bags of Marshmallows
100 Cans of Cranberry Sauce * 100 cans of Yams * 100 bags of Rolls or Mix * 100 Bottles of Syrup

Thank you so much for your support.
