Christina Bailey of Thrive Alliance has asked for the following to be shared: I'm doing a canned meat collection for my clients at work. We're going to use as prizes/ incentives for attending the educational programs & activities. Meat will help stretch their food budgets & get much-needed proteins. Canned beef, chicken, turkey, tuna, beef stew or "hearty" soups like pot roast. If anyone wants to make monetary donations instead I will purchase frozen meat items since we have freezer at work. Any extras will be shared w/ the senior hot meal site clients at community center. Please share w/ any youth groups or civic groups you belong to if they would like to do as a service project. Thank you! Christina Bailey [email protected] 812-379-1109
