Dear Friends of St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters,
Another year has flown by and the holiday season has arrived!
For Thanksgiving 2015, we are on a mission to distribute over 10,000 turkeys throughout the NYC area in our annual St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters' Turkey Drive (#StFFPturkeydrive).**
The recipients of these turkeys are families, including many seniors and children, who may otherwise go without.
With your support, we can lighten the load of families in need this holiday season. So, instead of worrying about their next meal our clients can focus on what is truly important - togetherness.
Please consider Making a Turkey Donation ** to lend a helping hand and "Put a Turkey on the Table" this season.
