Holiday Meals for Families in Need
ICA’s Turkey and Holiday Meal Program Returns!
Minnetonka, MN, November 1, 2017 --- Each November, ICA hosts a special day where we provide turkeys and all the holiday meal trimmings to our clients. It is truly one of the best days all year as we serve hundreds of our neighbors. Held on Thursday, November 16, one week prior to Thanksgiving, we provide turkeys, fresh veggies, and other holiday food items to local families in need. This is one of ICA’s favorite days all year, as we get to help hundreds of local families in one day. We anticipate serving between 730 and 800 families on this day.
The program is open to anyone in ICA’s service area of Hopkins, Minnetonka, Excelsior, Shorewood, Deephaven, Woodland, and Greenwood. All that is required is proof of address. There are two distribution locations: Zion Lutheran Church in Hopkins (241 5th Avenue North, Hopkins) from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Christ Community Church in Excelsior (897 3rd Avenue --south side of Highway 7) from 6:30 p.m. - 8 p.m.
The cost to provide this program is approximately $15,000 and we need our community’s help! A gift of just $17 will provide the food for a holiday meal to a family in need. Please consider making an extra gift today to help us spread the holiday cheer this coming season.
Support for this event comes from our Holiday Meal Sales at Cub Foods as well as our generous donors. Donate here: http://www.icafoodshelf.org/donation-form
