Donate a Holiday Meal Basket with the Open Door

A $30 donation to the Open Door will provide a food basket containing all the fixings a family of four will need to prepare a festive holiday meal.

The Open Door needs help to give Holiday Meal Baskets to local families this year. A donation of $30 provides a turkey, potatoes, butternut squash, apples, stuffing, cranberry and more. These baskets make a big difference to people in need during the holidays, and will be distributed to registered families and individuals who need a little help setting the table for the November and December holidays.
