Catholic Charities to Give Away 350 Thanksgiving Meals Monday November 23
Thanksgiving Meal Baskets Available at both Christ Child North and Juan Diego Center

WHAT: On Monday, Catholic Charities will provide 350 Thanksgiving meals to low-income families. Meals are provided so that families can not only celebrate Thanksgiving at home with a traditional meal, but also so they can create additional meals with leftover items.

A meal consists of a turkey, vegetables, rolls, stuffing and dessert.

WHEN: Monday, November 23, 2015
Christ Child North giveaway starts at 10 a.m. and will conclude at 11am
Juan Diego Center giveaway starts at 10 a.m and will conclude at noon.
(Families usually begin arriving 45 minutes prior to start time.)

WHERE: Christ Child North
2111 Emmet Street
Omaha, NE 68110

Juan Diego Center
5211 South 31st Street
Omaha NE 68107

COST: Thanksgiving meal baskets will be provided free of charge.

WHY: Catholic Charities feeds more than 26,000 individuals each year. Many are unable to afford a Thanksgiving dinner, and the meal baskets allow families to not go without this Thanksgiving.

Catholic Charities ministers to the greatest and most fundamental needs of our community. Our programs are varied as new needs arise and represent a seamless continuum of care to address the needs of children, women and men at all stages of life.
