Event Details

Operation Turkey

Operation Turkey is ACTS‘ largest annual food giveaway, and during this event, we provide Thanksgiving staples such as stuffing, cranberry sauce, and instant potatoes to low income families who visit our food pantry. This food is provided from organizations, businesses, churches, and local donors like yourself to ensure no family in our area goes without a holiday meal.
In 2016, the Food Pantry served 818 families, giving out 1,049 Operation Turkey bags, each weighing about 12 lbs.  The pantry distributed over 72,000 pounds of food, of which over 12,000 pounds consisted of Thanksgiving staples. In addition, each family received a $10 gift card from a local grocer to put towards the purchase of a turkey. The ACTS Food Pantry is appreciative of the participation and generosity shown by students, faculty and staff at your school.
The following items are what we need most to give families in our community a Happy Thanksgiving Day meal this year:
Canned Sweet Potatoes (15 oz)
Boxed Corn Muffin Mix 8.5 oz (Jiffy)
Boxed Stuffing Mix (6 oz)
Gravy Mixes (Packets only please)
Canned Cranberry Sauce (14 oz)
Instant Mashed Potatoes (13.75 oz)
Boxed Pie Crust Mix (9 oz)
Canned Pumpkin Pie Mix (15 oz)
Pie Filling
Evaporated Milk (12 oz)
*Pre-assembled bags are unnecessary, thank you.
If you are aware of any clubs or organizations  that may be interested in participating in our food drive, we would greatly appreciate you forwarding their details. We would also be happy to provide flyers, posters and other promotional material to help you spread the word.
Please bring all donated food to our pantry location at:
The ACTS Family Services Center
17950 Dr. David Cline Lane in Dumfries.
We ask that all donors bring in their donations by October 13th. This will allow us an ample amount of time to sort through food and assemble bags for the families we’re excited to serve.
We will be giving out food to families during our Food Pantry’s hours of operation from November 1st through the 21st.
