Thanksgiving in July
July 29 - August 3
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until July 29, 2022
No one ever wants to wonder where their next meal will come from. Currently, in Muscatine County, there are 4,871 people who are food insecure and 1,724 of those are children. United Way of Muscatine and other local non-profit agencies are working very hard to reduce the number of people who don’t know where they will find their next meal. United Way of Muscatine is partnering with Hy-Vee, Crossroads, MCSA, and the Salvation Army of Muscatine to host a community-wide food drive called Thanksgiving in July and we need your help!
We are requesting that local businesses, civic, and faith-based organizations in town collect non-perishable food for the community-wide drive during the week of July 24-July 29. Historically, churches have collected food on Sunday of that week and the business have collected food Monday-Thursday.
The non-perishable food you collect can be picked up on Friday, July 29 or dropped off to our truck in the Hy-Vee parking lot on Saturday, July 30 between 8:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Volunteers will load the donated food into the truck at Hy-Vee, take it to Crossroads to be sorted and weighed, and deliver it to the Salvation Army of Muscatine and the Muscatine Center for Social Action. All donations stay in Muscatine!
