The volunteer Mobile Turkey Unit is accepting requests for free, home-delivered Thanksgiving dinners to people on South and Central Whidbey for a 14th year of operation.
People can request a meal for themselves or neighbors by calling 341-1220 and leaving a message, using the online form at www.mobileturkeyunit.wordpress.com, or via a meal request form available at Good Cheer Food Bank, Senior Services of Island County, or Helping Hand of South Whidbey which should be mailed by Saturday, Nov. 17. Volunteers should call the same phone number.
Volunteers cooked, packaged and delivered 333 meals last year to people in need, including seniors unable to cook a large meal or who were alone on Thanksgiving, ill and disabled people, low-income families, homeless individuals and people working on Thanksgiving Day.
Donations can be made online or a check made out to TLC with “Mobile Turkey Unit” in the memo area, and mailed to Trinity Lutheran Church, P.O. Box 97, Freeland, WA 98249.
