Sponsor a Durham Family or Donate a Turkey This Thanksgiving

The Durham Interchurch Assistance program, which helps less fortunate families, is preparing for another busy holiday season. Here's how you can help:


It’s time to start planning for the Thanksgiving Holiday!! 

Annually, Durham Interchurch Assistance prepares a Thanksgiving Holiday Basket Program for families and individuals. Stresses from financial difficulties, unemployment, medical problems, and other personal or family issues often create unanticipated hardships. Families or individuals having difficulties are encouraged to call Durham Human Services at 860-349-3153 to apply for a Thanksgiving Basket.

Families and organizations can sponsor an individual or family. Donors can provide food gift cards in gift amounts of their choice and send them to Human Services, Thanksgiving Program, Town Hall, P.O. Box 428 Durham, CT 06422. Please send in gift cards by November 18th if you would like to donate.

Donations of turkeys will gratefully be accepted on Tuesday, November 20 from 9 to 10 am at Durham Activity Center located at 350 Main Street in Durham. Please call Amanda at 860-349-3153 if you are interested in donating a turkey. Volunteers are needed to help coordinate distribution from 9 to 12 on November 20th.

Please call Amanda at 860-349-3153 with any questions.
