Two of our volunteers work to distribute canned vegetables as we pack Thanksgiving Dinner bags for Plainfield families in need.
Our Holiday Dinner Project serves 160 to 170 families of all sizes every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. Each family receives a frozen turkey or a canned ham, depending on the holiday, plus all the trimmings needed to make it a special holiday dinner.
Holiday Magic at Star Fish
Cases of food are lined up and waiting for volunteers to begin spreading them out for family dinners.
Each family gets four tea bags in a little baggie. They don't just jump into those baggies - three helpers make that happen.
Some of the hundreds of toys that were donated by VIP Honda of North Plainfield and by St. Helen's Church of Westfield.
Two sizes of hams were available - three pound and five pound - and were distributed based on family size.
Volunteers add the finishing touches to the piles of food waiting to be packed in the grocery bags on the floor.
All those boxes of food get recycled when empty. Two of our workers are busy prepping the boxes for bundling.
