Holidays can be a particularly difficult time for families in need. In addition to the monthly emergency food supplies and clothing, the Partnership strives to provide a holiday meal to each family they serve. Every Thanksgiving, the Johnston Partnership accepts monetary donations for a voucher for a whole turkey or bone-in turkey breast that is provided to each family that receives their monthly box. Side dish items such as instant mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, canned pumpkin and gravy mixes will be available as part of the food pantry selections for the month. Holidays can be particularly stressful for those in need. In addition to the monthly emergency food supplies and clothing, the Johnston Partnership strives to provide a Thanksgiving turkey for each family they serve.
The Johnston partnership welcomes donations in any amount, to offset the cost for each whole turkey or bone-in turkey breast. Donations can be dropped off in person during operating hours; they can be mailed to PO Box 975, Johnston, IA 50131 or donations can be made online by visiting www.johnstonpartnership.org and clicking on the Donate button in the top left corner.
