Ways to Give Back for Thanksgiving

Run or walk, but providing service to others is a surefire way to celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving.

If a slice of humble pie is on your Thanksgiving menu, the Sacramento area is teeming with volunteer opportunities. There are still spots in the annual Run to Feed the Hungry, and local food banks are always looking for donations and an extra hand.

The following is a roundup of ways to give back this holiday, feel free to share others you know of in the comments section! 

Run to Feed the Hungry: This annual Thanksgiving morning 5K and 10K run could always use more runners. Volunteer spots have already been filled, so here's an excuse to get your feet and heart racing. Register here and help support the Sacramento Food Bank

Donate Food and Socks: To help out Loaves and Fishes prepare its annual Thanksgiving dinner, donations of food, utensils and socks are needed. "Whether you can bring a turkey, a baked pie, or just a bag of marshmallows, it makes a difference," the Loaves of Fishes website states. The big meal is Tuesday, so donate by Monday at the latest. Call (916) 446-0874 for more details.

Braxmeyer event for the EGFB Turkey Drive, Sunday November 18th hosted by Shellie and Jerry Braxmeyer. It's at the Wal Mart Neighborhood Market 8455 Elk Grove Blvd., a stone's throw away from its current store at 8465 Elk Grove Blvd from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. The purpose is Shellie and I want to support the local food bank and give back to this great community that we live in. We are challenging any business to match our personal donation of 100 turkeys and also ask that residents donate one frozen turkey. All proceeds go to the EG Food bank. Jerry C.
