YELM COOPERATIVE ANNOUNCES SIXTH ANNUAL “GIFT OF GOBBLE”
Thanksgiving is traditionally about giving thanks for the blessings of the harvest. The Yelm Cooperative will, once again, ensure a bountiful Thanksgiving feast for 125 families in our Community who may not have been blessed with an abundant harvest this year.
The Yelm Cooperative will raise $8,000 to feed 125 families a sumptuous Thanksgiving feast that will feed a family of six. Each family receives: a naturally-grown turkey, organic carrots, onions and potatoes, stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls, pie fixings and more.
Charitable contributions, large or small, are gratefully being accepted at the Yelm Food Co-op now until Thanksgiving. $60 will feed a family. In addition to accepting individual contributions, project volunteers will call on area businesses for donations.
The Yelm Food Co-op is located at 308 Yelm Avenue East inside Gordon’s Garden Center.
The store carries organic, artisan and whole foods from many local farmers and companies.
