Annual Thanksgiving Meal Drive

Thanksgiving Bags 2020
…putting action to the message of helping others…
22nd Annual Thanksgiving Project for Needy Families
In Memory of Byron Saunders

The Thanksgiving Basket project was created by Brian Wollenberg, a former CW graduate.  For the first couple of years, his good friend and supervisor from work, Byron Saunders, helped Brian collect food items, assemble, and deliver the Thanksgiving Baskets.  Byron was tragically killed in a car accident on Wright Rd. in Canal Winchester.  Because Byron has touched Brian’s life and has been an inspiration to him, Brian now dedicates this project in memory of his friend Byron.  
Last year over 6000 meals were provided to families thru the giving of Thanksgiving Baskets in Canal Winchester and other communities throughout central Ohio.
Our district collected $4,442.00 in grocery gift cards for the Thanksgiving Bags.  This will be turned into more than 115 holiday meals for needy, local families. This makes 2020 just a little better.
