The Horn of Plenty provides families in need within a 100 mile radius of Minot with assistance right before Christmas. This help comes in the form of a turkey, perishable food items (potatoes, onions, milk, butter, etc.), non-perishable food items, and if the family has children, toys that can be used as Christmas gifts. The Horn of Plenty does not just provide the family with one meal – it provides a week’s worth of groceries at a critical time during the year. In the past three years, more than 1,000 families have benefitted through the Turkey Drive and the Horn of Plenty.
This year, our goal is to raise $10,500 to assist in this effort. As in the previous two years, the amount to donate a turkey is $15 and the amount to donate an entire basked of food is $45. Between 11/1-12/5 Trinity Health Foundation representatives will be in various locations around Trinity Health to receive donations for the Turkey Drive. You may also send donations to the foundation office in the St, Joseph’s Building.
Besides making a monetary donation to the Turkey Drive, Trinity Health employees, and their family members, may help pack the materials that are provided to the families. This year, the packing date is set for Wednesday, December 11, 2019. The following week, Trinity Health employees and their family members may volunteer to help deliver items to families in need. If you are interested in helping to pack or deliver items, please contact the Trinity Health Foundation office, (701) 857-2430 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
