Members of the Plainfield Moose Lodge along with the Ford Family of Plainfield are again asking for frozen turkeys to help feed needy families. They are hoping to exceed last year’s collection of 1050 birds.
All donations will benefit the Plainfield Interfaith Food Pantry, We Care of Romeoville Pantry, Wheatland Township Food Program and Morning Star Mission of Joliet, for distribution of Thanksgiving baskets.
They will be collecting frozen turkeys the Saturday before Thanksgiving, November 17th, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Drop off location is Plainfield Moose Lodge 16310 S Lincoln Highway (On Route 30, ½ mile N of I-55) in Crest Creek Plaza. Lodge Ph: 815-254-1403
In exchange for your donation of a frozen turkey, Moose members welcome you to free brunch at their Lodge. In addition to turkeys, they will also collect non-perishable items for the baskets. Cash donations are also accepted and the money collected will be used to purchase additional turkeys. Making a cash donation earlier than Nov 17th is appreciated. We are trying to work with area grocery stores to give us a reduced rate per pound to allow us to buy more turkeys for our money. Please make checks payable to the Plainfield Moose Lodge and note “Turkey Drop”. Tax deductable information can be provided, upon request. Business’s donating will be added to our “Bragging Board” of sponsors and also on our web site, www.plainfieldturkeydrop.com. For questions and information, please contact any one of the following:
