The City of Gary's Annual Thanksgiving Basket Giveaway Event

The City of Gary's Annual Citywide Thanksgiving Basket Giveaway will be held on November 19, 2016 at the Diamond Center located at the U.S. Steel Yard, One Stadium Plaza in Gary, IN from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

We will need volunteers from Thursday through Saturday; Thursday from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

On Saturday, it is highly encouraged for all volunteers to be present the entire day to help do last minute packing and to help with the distribution of food to our Gary residents. If you cannot stay for the entire day (10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) please indicate that on the registration form as well as indicate when and how long you are able to volunteer. 

As in past years, we will continue our partnership with the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana in providing 1,000 families with food for the Thanksgiving holiday, and with your help we can make this happen! We look forward to your volunteering with us in an effort to make this year's event a success! Register to help now. Go to www.gary.in.us for more information.
