If you are really thankful, what do you do? You Share! These are the words of philanthropist W. Clement Stone with which we – at Tax Savings Professionals – wholeheartedly agree!
To show our “thankfulness” this holiday season, we are holding a Thanksgiving Food Drive at our office during the month of November to help feed the hungry families in our community. And to make an even larger difference, I have decided to “dollar match” each pound our employees donate so local food banks will be able to buy perishable food items (such as turkeys, eggs, butter, milk etc.) that can be used to prepare hot meals.
We challenge you and your business to get into the spirit of giving this season as well and host your own holiday food drive! Click on any or all of the three links below to find food banks in your community.
Popular choices for holiday dinners (which Food Pantries use to round out their perishable offerings) include boxed stuffing mix, instant mashed potatoes in boxes or packets, jars of turkey gravy or dried gravy mix packets, canned yams, cranberry sauce, canned veggies, cornbread mix, fixings for green bean casserole (cream of mushroom soup, canned green beans and French-fried onions), canned pumpkin or fruit pie filling, pie crust mix, salt & pepper. Other “evergreen items” include canned milk, cereal, rice, beans, cans of instant coffee, peanut butter, jelly, sandwich bread, canned fruits, and juices.
After all, the more food we collect, the more dollars we raise – and the more reasons we ALL have to be thankful! Won’t you join with Tax Savings Professionals as we celebrate the “season of giving” helping our friends and neighbors? Through the acceptance of our challenge to launch your own dollar match food drive, we guarantee it will “feed your soul” and those who are hungry. That’s what we call - a win-win.
Happy Thanksgiving and all the best to you and yours from Tax Savings Professionals!
