Last year the student council at Moore County High School took on a Thanksgiving mission: put together baskets containing everything a local family might need to enjoy the day in a single Thanksgiving basket. Last year the group put together over 30 baskets that were distributed discreetly to local families.

Each basket will include: a jar of peanut butter, a box of tea bags or instant drink mix, five cans of vegetables, two cans of fruit, a large box of all purpose baking mix, a box of cornbread mix, a box of stuffing, gravy, a large box of instant potatoes, two boxes of mac and cheese, brownie or cookie mix, two pounds of sugar, and a gift card or gift certificate for a turkey to be purchased at Woodard’s Market. They also need plastic laundry baskets to hold all the Thanksgiving items.

The student council is asking for donations from the community to help with the project. Items may be dropped off at the high school. Baskets will be distributed on Sunday, November 22 and the student council asks that all donation be dropped off by Friday, November 20.
