Give Thanks by Giving Back this Holiday Season

Give thanks by giving back.Thanksgiving is certainly a time for giving thanks. Each year we sit down to feast and reflect on all the goodness in our life, from friends and family to the roof above our heads.

In addition to planning and preparing your lovely Thanksgiving meal, we urge you to take a moment out of your day to help a neighbor in need. There are so many easy ways to give back in Branford. Here are just a few ideas:

The Branford Food Pantry

The Branford Food Pantry helps feed more than 400 families each month. In the last two years, they ran out of turkeys for Thanksgiving and had to give out chickens instead. To donate a turkey or help the food pantry in other ways, call 203.315.8251, or send a check to the Branford Food Pantry at 30 Harrison Ave., Branford, CT 06405. Click here to learn more.
