Question: Thanksgiving baskets for families

Our school does not do anything for thanksgiving. They don't want to interfere with the Christmas donations. I was wondering if anyone does a raffle for a smaller basket and use the profits to make other baskets for needy families?

Hi there!
A raffle sounds like a fun idea, but make sure to check with your local community -- you may need a permit to run the raffle. You could try a simple food drive of nonperishable items, that likely wouldn't take away from what your group does at Christmas. We just published a blog on community service ideas for the Thanksgiving season that you may find helpful.

Good luck!
