Thankful Hearts Take N Bake provides Thanksgiving groceries to 100 families in Lumpkin and Dawson County that they can take home and prepare together. Please help support our NINTH year providing Thanksgiving meals!
A donation of $25 will help provide a turkey for a family in need in our community.
A donation of $75 helps sponsor the following for a family of six: Turkey, Ham, Stuffing mix, Cranberry sauce, Green beans, Corn, Rice, Chicken broth, Cream of chicken, Yams, Potatoes, Onions, Sugar, Tea, Butter, Bread, Rolls, Pie, Macaroni, Foil Pan
The idea for Thankful Hearts came about when a group of seven friends got together and decided to start doing something for families in need in their local community of Dahlonega, Georgia. They recognized that there was a need to help working families, during the holidays, offset the cost of providing a Thanksgiving meal. Thankful Hearts was born!
One of the founding members of Thankful Hearts, Amberly Enich is quoted as saying, “Thankful Hearts is taking applications from anyone. People can nominate a family or apply for themselves. They don’t have to be on Food Stamps or have lost their home. There are a lot of families that are just getting by and a big meal like Thanksgiving can really put a strain on their budget”.
Thankful Hearts is a program of Lumpkin County Family Connection ran by a committee of volunteers. All donations go directly to purchase items for a family's Thanksgiving Meal.
