Thanks and 500 free turkey boxes to families in Lansing

Thanksgiving will be here before you know it.

For many, it’s a time to get together and celebrate. Especially after last year with Covid lockdowns and self-imposed isolation. We’re still not quite out of the woods, but with vaccines and booster shots, things are looking up. You can celebrate the holidays with family gatherings and parties. In the context of common sense and yet safe.

Not everyone is going to have a Happy Thanksgiving

For some people, it still doesn’t turn out to be a fun and festive holiday. It won’t be about bringing the family together because they can’t put food on the table for some.

For now:

  • In Michigan, 1,299,020 People are hungry – and from them 305.190 are children.
  • 1 in 8 people go hungry.
  • 1 out of 7 are children. (Feed America)
