Operation Thanksgiving
Celebrating 25 Years


This holiday season you can help Kansas City low-income families enjoy a festive Thanksgiving meal.


We need 2,000 frozen turkeys for these families. Come by one of the participating Sun Fresh Markets on November 10. Purchase and donate a 10-pound frozen turkey to Della Lamb’s Operation Thanksgiving. We will have trucks on-site to deposit the frozen turkeys. Participating Sun Fresh Markets:

Frozen turkeys are our greatest need. However we also need stuffing mix, cans of corn or green beans, gravy mix, apple pie filling, pie crust, cranberry sauce, chocolate cake and frosting mix, margarine and dozens of eggs.


Also, a $35 tax-deductible contribution will provide one family with all the groceries needed for a complete Thanksgiving feast. A $50 donation will allow us to purchase 67 packages of stuffing mix and 35 dozen eggs.


Operation Thanksgiving takes place Tuesday, Nov. 21. It is one of the largest Thanksgiving distribution events in Kansas City!
