Upshur Parish House staff and volunteers are beginning to prepare for their Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday meal baskets. They anticipate an increased need for these baskets this year.
Here are the items they are collecting for the baskets:
canned green beans, canned corn, jiffy pie crust mix, fruit pie filling, pumpkin pie filling, evaporated milk, cranberry sauce, chicken/turkey gravy, canned yams, tubs of frosting, cake mixes, stovetop stuffing, and instant mashed potatoes.
Other items their food pantry always needs:
grape jelly; size 4, 5, or 6 diapers and/or Pull-Ups; kid-friendly foods such as spaghetti o’s or ravioli with pop-tab tops; canned vegetables; canned pork n beans; canned/jarred fruit such as applesauce or peaches; shampoo; toothpaste and toothbrushes; deodorant; tampons; dish soap; powdered laundry detergent; and toilet paper.
Any help is appreciated!
