Thanksgiving meal boxes distributed to families in Pinellas County
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Metropolitan Ministries and the Florida Dream Center have partnered up to make sure that Bay Area families have turkeys to eat come Thanksgiving.
Saturday marked the first day of their Adopt-A Block program, where dozens of volunteers deliver holiday food boxes to local families.
“We did 1,200 last year, including Christmas,” explained Dream Center Executive Director Steve Cleveland. “This year we’re doing 1,200 for Thanksgiving, and 1,200 for Christmas. A total of 2,400.”
Each of those boxes will include a frozen Thanksgiving Turkey big enough to feed the whole family.
