The Salvation Army needs your help with Thanksgiving meals

The Salvation Army of Oshkosh is in need of turkeys and ingredients for side dishes to make up food boxes for families to cook their own Thanksgiving dinner.

The Salvation Army of Oshkosh is the only local provider of food boxes of items that can be used by families to make a Thanksgiving dinner. Last year the Corps distributed over 500 Thanksgiving food boxes to those who had applied and were income qualified. This year, the need is greater and the resources of the Corps have been diminished due to the economy.

Donations of turkeys, ingredients and financial assistance can be dropped off at the Oshkosh Corps during regular business hours from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm, Monday - Friday. The Corps will also happily accommodate those who can only donate outside those hours.

If you have any questions, call the Corps at 232-7660. Thank you.
