Description

This time of year we begin to count our blessings and offer what we can to others in need. When we support the Caring Coalition, we directly support families in our neighborhood.

The Caring Coalition, a Coronado neighborhood nonprofit, is gearing up for one of our especially caring events. Along with providing weekend meals bags to over 50 students at Emerson Elementary every Friday throughout the school year, in mid-November, we also provide a generous Thanksgiving to families in need.

While most associate Thanksgiving with turkey, maybe it’s time to think a little differently. Past donations of turkeys have been generous and welcome, but we’ve learned it’s been hard on some of the families. There is often not enough time to properly thaw the big birds before the big day and many families do not have the means to cook something so large.

So, this year, we are looking for donations of a different kind (of bird). It’s time to celebrate Thanksgiving Chicken! Chicken can be cooked in the oven, in a pot, on the grill, in a number of ways. It’s a much more versatile bird. A few chickens per family will go much farther than a turkey.

In addition to the First Annual Thanksgiving Chicken Drive, we are holding what you would consider a more typical Thanksgiving food drive. To see everything on our wish list and sign up to donate certain items, please visit bit.ly/ThanksgivingChicken. You can also make a monetary donation at the link provided.

After you’ve signed up to purchase and donate specific items, please deliver them to one of the following locations Nov. 1-12:

Chickens, perishables, and non-perishables can be delivered to Sunshine Market - 12th St and Oak.

Non-perishables can be delivered to The Hive at 16th St and Cypress or McDowell Market at 18th St and McDowell.
