Over the past few years, we here at Customer Magnetism have collected items for the annual ForKids Thanksgiving food drive, helping 50 families enjoying a hot meal on the holiday each year.
This year, we set a lofty goal of 100 meals–double the amount from previous years–and are encouraging fellow business owners and individuals to join us in this cause! Because it’s easy for the small non-profits in our backyard to get overlooked, we think it’s important to give back to our local community and ForKids is definitely a great organization to support.
If you’re interested in helping us reach our goal, donations (whether it’s complete dinners, grocery store gift cards, or monetary donations) can be dropped off at two locations: our office in Virginia Beach from 9-6 every weekday, and Good Mojo Thrift Store on Granby in Norfolk from 11-5 Monday through Saturday. Check out the list of necessary items on their site, and if you can’t make it to the store in time, ForKids accepts donations online!
The preferable deadline for drop-offs is Friday, November 22 so that the folks at ForKids can assemble and distribute the meals before Thanksgiving Day, but donations will still be accepted through noon on Wednesday, November 27.
We’re excited to help out again this year and hope you’ll take part, too!
