"Last Chance" for Needy Families for Thanksgiving Help

By Jason Weinstein.
Those who need some help having a Happy Thanksgiving have a last chance to sign up for food baskets at Catholic Charities.

The agency announced Friday it is extending it's deadline to sign up for baskets until Friday, October 23rd.

You and all in your household must be residents of Broome County. You can sign up at Catholic Charities Binghamton pantry Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings and early afternoon. You can also sign up Tuesday afternoons from 1-6.

Those in Western Broome can stop by Mother Theresa's Endicott pantry at St. Ambrose Church Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9am-2:30pm, and Tuesday from 4-7pm.

"Come in and sign up, bring their ID requirements and we organize those names onto a list and we sort that list according to whichever parish is closest to where they live," said Sandra Ohlsen of Catholic Charities of Broome County.

Catholic Charities is accepting donations of shelf-stable holiday fixings. It will also hold it's annual turkey drive from November 16th through the 20th at the Wal-Mart in Vestal. For more information or to donate you can go to catholiccharitiesbc.org.
