Flakesgiving Just Around The Corner!
If you are relatively new to the area, here’s something that we are sure you will want to be a part of and it is called Flakesgiving! We take one whole week and gather donations to cover the cost of 1500 Thanksgiving meals for those in need. Each meal has a 10-12 lb. turkey, 2 boxes of mac & cheese, a package of rolls, cans of corn, black olives and gravy mix. This will feed 5-7 people per box.
Then we hand out meals on Saturday at noon to anybody who wants one. No paperwork, no qualifying. Just come and get it. Prior to that, we deliver close to 500 meals to shut-ins, and various organizations around town. “The Hub, Veterans Upward Bound, Women’s Shelter, Billings Food Bank
On “Assembly Friday” we’ll get upwards of 200 high school students help us uncrate all of the food and together complete the meals! We’ll do all 1500 meals in just under 90 minutes. It’s quite a task, and quite a sight!
This year’s dates are November 22-23, write it down. Many hands make light work so let’s get’r done!
