ST. VINCENT DE PAUL DISTRIBUTING 1,200 THANKSGIVING MEALS TO LOCAL FAMILIES IN NEED
CINCINNATI – November 20, 2020 –St. Vincent de Paul – Cincinnati is once again helping ensure local families are able to celebrate Thanksgiving with a bountiful dinner by distributing 1,200 turkeys and fixings for a complete meal to local families in need. The distribution will take place via a drive-thru on Tuesday, November 24, from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Cincinnati Museum Center parking lot at 1301 Western Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45203.
The drive-thru food distribution is open to anyone in need of a Thanksgiving meal. Neighbors should not arrive prior to 9:00 a.m. Neighbors are asked to wear masks and remain in their vehicles as food is distributed. A photo I.D. is required; limit one box of food per family. Each box contains everything needed to make a complete meal at home including a turkey, roasting pan, fresh produce and all the fixings.
“Our annual tradition takes on a new form this year, but our commitment to ensuring our neighbors in need have a blessed, hearty Thanksgiving remains the same,” says Mike Dunn, Executive Director of St. Vincent de Paul – Cincinnati. “We are grateful for the logistical support from the Cincinnati Museum Center and generous donations from the community who helped make this distribution happen amidst challenging circumstances this year.”
Normally over 100 volunteers assist with this distribution, however in the interest of public health, the distribution will primarily be facilitated by St. Vincent de Paul staff members and a very limited number of volunteers. The community can support this effort and St. Vincent de Paul’s upcoming Christmas meal distribution by giving at SVDPcincinnati.org/give.
