During the month of November, staff and members are collecting food in RTN branches for families in need in those communities where RTN branches are located to help make sure they can enjoy Thanksgiving dinner.
Our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive in our Waltham branch provides a complete Thanksgiving dinner for four Waltham families. As in past years, Tom Scafidi, owner of the Common Café, is donating the turkeys. We collect the rest.
The Thanksgiving Food Drive is organized through the RTN Employees Community Outreach Committee, which is made up of RTN employees who contribute funds and volunteer to assist local organizations and charities throughout the year.
Suggested items for donations include canned vegetables and cranberry sauce, chicken broth or gravy, fresh fruit and vegetables, apple cider, breads, stuffing, nuts, pasta and sauce, dried beans, rice, deserts, and supermarket gift cards.
We appreciate the participation of RTN staff and members. Thanks to everyone for your support!
