Feed the Troops this Thanksgiving with The Wyoming Advocates
During the holiday season, many of us are looking for opportunities to get in the spirit of giving and help those around us. The Advocates are proud to be sponsors of the Operation Feast of Gratitude food drive here in Cheyenne.
Put on by the Rise Foundation of Wyoming, the food drive’s goal is to provide Thanksgiving meal baskets to local military members and their families. The foundation is asking for help from the community to gather all the food items needed to meet their goal of feeding 250 families.
How Can I Contribute?
There are several ways you can contribute to the Thanksgiving dinner baskets:
Attend the food drive event:
On November 16th from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, donations will be accepted in the Appaloosa Broadcasting parking lot. During the all-day event, the Graffiti Cuisine food truck will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner until they run out. Anyone who donates food or money will get 10% off their order from the food truck.
A wish list of food items can be found below.
