South Bend Police Department partners to feed families for Thanksgiving
SOUTH BEND, Ind. –The South Bend Police department is holding its annual Thanksgiving food drive and they're collecting donations from now through Nov. 21.
If you or your family is struggling to put food on the table this holiday season, the South Bend Police Department wants to help.
All you need to do is fill out an application by Sunday, November 7 at the South Bend Police Department or email Officer Stephanie Northcutt at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a box with all the ingredients needed to make a full Thanksgiving dinner.
The annual Thanksgiving food drive aims to bring food to the tables for families in need this holiday season. But, they are looking for donations to make it happen.
SBPD along with South Bend FOP Lodge #36 is teaming up with Christ Temple Apostolic Church to help bring Thanksgiving to families in need in the community. They’re asking for the community help and are collecting items such as cans of gravy or packets of gravy mix, canned vegetables, boxed stuffing mix, instant potatoes, canned yams, can of cream of mushroom soup, bags of marshmallows, boxes of jiffy cornbread mix, and French’s original crispy onions.
“We actually have Magistrate Gamut which is going to donate some turkeys for us this year, which has been a huge blessing, but we can always use more," Officer Stephanie Northcutt said. "Because the more that we get, it is completely donations driven. So, the more that we can take in the more families we can assist."
There are two drop-off locations, South Bend Police Station on Sample Road and McKinnie’s Realty on East Day Road in Mishawaka.
