Franklin Park teaming with North Hills charity for Thanksgiving food drive
North Hills residents who want to help provide Thanksgiving Day dinners for needy families can drop off donations at the Franklin Park municipal offices.
The borough is teaming up with North Hills Community Outreach to collect food and cash donations as part of the Thanksgiving on Every Table program.
The items being collected include: large boxes of stuffing and instant mashed potatoes mix; cans of cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, vegetables, “easy” pumpkin pie mix and evaporated milk; cornbread and muffin mix; and napkins.
Grocery store gift certificates of $15 or more also are needed to provide turkey and other items for the holiday meal table.
Donations can be dropped off weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Oct. 12 to Nov 2 at the borough offices, 2344 West Ingomar Road.
