Dear DATA Families,

 We are looking for volunteers and donations for our Thanksgiving Dinner Drive.  We couldn’t provide this needed and meaningful service without you.  Right now we are looking to provide about 30 dinners to families of DATA students. We will begin collecting dry and canned goods the week of November 18th and will collect turkeys (frozen) on Friday 11/22  We also need cardboard boxes large enough in which to place the dinner items.  On the morning of Friday 11/22, we need volunteers to inventory collected items, create dinner boxes and go shopping for additional items if needed.  We may also need volunteers to deliver the meals as some students take the bus. 

**Ideally, we need 3-5 parents to work with administration to assist in organizing, shopping, preparation and delivery of meals. Please e-mail Ms. Myhre at: lisa.myhre@datacharter.org if you are willing to do this. **

Sample Items Needed:

Cash Donations, Gift Cards (Smiths, Wal-Mart), frozen turkeys,(please let us know if you are planning on donating turkey so we can account for it) Foil Roasting Pans, stuffing, potatoes, dinner rolls, gravy, canned veggies, pre-made pies/desserts, etc…

This is one of the best things we do at DATA and our families are truly generous and grateful.

Thank you, Lisa
