Last Thanksgiving, hundreds of neighbors lined up outside CAMBA’s Beyond Hunger Emergency Food Pantry at 2241 Church Avenue to pick up holiday turkeys and all the fixings for a traditional meal.

Thanks to you – Ditmas Park Corner readers – every single one of them came away with arms and shopping carts filled with food.

Last year, our community came together and gave almost $11,000 to the local non-profit CAMBA, which meant they were able to provide a full Thanksgiving meal to hundreds of local families. We think we can do that again, and do it even better.

This year, we’re partnering  again with CAMBA’s  food pantry — which serves more than 4,000 people each month at its Church Avenue location — to bring 500 turkeys to local families this Thanksgiving, and we hope you’ll join us

CAMBA always gives what they can, but turkeys can stretch a pantry budget to the breaking point. So they’re asking for some help bringing Thanksgiving turkeys to hundreds of families in our community:

For $25, you can supply a turkey and all the trimmings for a family of six.

For $50, you’ll bring that to two families.

For $100, you’ll ensure that four families enjoy a memorable Thanksgiving meal.

For $250, you’ll treat 10 families the kind of Thanksgiving dinner that everyone should enjoy.

When we did this a year ago, support flooded in from neighbors throughout our area, and the “500 Turkeys for 500 Families” drive was a huge success – which showed when, during Thanksgiving week, the line of people waiting for turkeys stretched down Church Avenue – and no one left without a Thanksgiving meal in hand. Let’s make sure that happens again this year. Please give if you can!
