YELM COOPERATIVE ANNOUNCES FIFTH ANNUAL “GIFT OF GOBBLE”
Leaves are falling – Thanksgiving is on its way. The Yelm Cooperative will once again nourish our community through a project called “Feed a Family – Give the Gift of Gobble.”
To raise the needed money, charitable contributions, large or small, are being accepted at the Yelm Food Co-op now until Thanksgiving.
– Last year the project raised enough money to feed 106 families.
– This year the Co-op has set its goal of feeding 125 families.
In addition to accepting individual contributions, project volunteers will call on area businesses for donations. Just $65 will provide all the ingredients for a sumptuous Thanksgiving feast that will feed a family of six, plus leftovers! Each family gets: a naturally-grown turkey, organic vegetables and potatoes, stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls, pie fixings and more.
The Yelm Food Co-op is located at 308 Yelm Avenue East inside Gordons Garden Center.
The store carries organic, artisan and whole foods from many local farmers and companies.
