PITTSBURGH -- The Washington Salvation Army is providing “Baskets of Hope” filled with all the components of a warm, Thanksgiving meal for families in need this holiday season.
The baskets will be available for pick-up, provided to the community in a socially-distant and safe way during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Donations are needed to support this important program and Washington County families and individuals in need.
To give, visit salvationarmywpa.org/basketsofhope.
“We do this because we truly feel it’s important for people to be able to gather around the table together to enjoy the season,” said Captain Amber Imhoff, Commanding Officer in a media release.
The “Baskets of Hope” will include traditional sides such as cranberry sauce, stuffing mix and more, along with a grocery store voucher to pick up a turkey breast or whole frozen turkey at Thanksgiving, and a ham or lasagna tray for the Christmas meal.
“For many of our seniors that come for help, they don’t want their extended family to know they are struggling to provide the holiday meal,” Imhoff said.
Call 724-225-5740 to sign up for a Basket of Hope and to verify that your zip code is served by The Washington Salvation Army.
Pick-up of the baskets will occur on Nov. 16 through Nov. 20 between 10 a.m. and noon at The Washington Salvation Army, 60 E. Maiden Street, Washington, PA 15301. A photo I.D. will be needed.
