It’s that time again – Gift of Gobble time.
Every year, Bounty for Families (formerly the Yelm Cooperative) feeds 100 local families at Thanksgiving through community support.
The families represent an authentic cross-section of Yelm: 25 are from JBLM, 27 are from 9 local churches, 6 are from two school districts – Yelm and Rainier – and the remainder are individuals nominated by the community.
Through this unique program dreamt up nine years ago by one local woman, those who may be struggling this holiday season but don’t qualify for social services can maintain their privacy and dignity.
They simply pick up all the fixings for a Thanksgiving feast, including a turkey, potatoes, vegetables, and even pumpkin pie fillings on the Monday before Thanksgiving. Anyone can nominate a family by filling out a form at the Yelm Food Co-op or Nominate a family online and one of our volunteers will contact them and provide details of where and when.
Gift of Gobble relies entirely on community support. All donations are tax deductible and go directly to supporting people right here in our neighborhoods. Just $60 feeds a family of six! Click here to donate and make a difference for our community. Thank you for your support and Happy Holidays!
