This year for Thanksgiving, Heartland Council has purchased $2,500.00 worth of Turkey’s and other non-perishables for the food pantries in Bellevue. The three food pantries came together to ensure that food is distributed equally to the needy in the South Omaha and Bellevue area.

The total cost for this one day is over $10,000.00. Heartland Council is proud to help sponsor this effort. This year, we ordered Turkeys at a cost of 99 cents per pound, 125 Turkeys. This purchase will ensure that at least 125 families will have a fresh turkey for Thanksgiving this year. As you can see, our volunteers work very hard to fulfill the needs in this community.

Bob Wolkins knew of the need earlier this year at the food banks for the coming Thanksgiving and worked with Fareway Grocery to purchase the Turkey’s and non-perishables for Thanksgiving.
