As El Paso families continue to be financially impacted by the pandemic, the Great Khalid Foundation is helping to alleviate a little bit of their burden with the Great Thanksgiving Giveaway.
The Great Khalid Foundation and the Boys & Girls Club of El Paso, in partnership with Townsquare Media and many more community partners, is setting out to help families in need during the Thanksgiving holiday. This first-time initiative will aim to give 1,000 families a complete Thanksgiving dinner. Each family will receive a meal box that includes all of the essentials to make a Thanksgiving meal that will feed 4-6 people. A drive-thru distribution of the meal boxes will take place at FirstLight Federal Credit Union at 9983 Kenworthy on Saturday, November 21, 2020.
