RPB Volunteers Prepare 525 Thanksgiving Packages

Volunteers gather around 525 bags of food ready to be given out.

Volunteers came together in Royal Palm Beach from Wednesday, Nov. 20 through Friday, Nov. 22 to sort and bag 21,300 donated food items collected during the month of November from 16 local schools and the greater community. The 525 food bags were combined with turkeys donated Saturday, Nov. 23 from the Unilocal Turkey Drive hosted by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office at the Publix store at the Crossroads Plaza. Food other than traditional Thanksgiving items went to replenish local food pantries, such as Oasis Church, Ruth’s Food Pantry, Community of Hope and more.
