Volunteers will also be needed at 1 p.m. Friday to help move the boxes from the FISH headquarters, 2805 King Street, to Aldersgate Church, 5500 Sayle Street in Greenville.

Help is also requested, starting at 6 a.m. Saturday, at Daybreak Produce, 1661 Interstate 30 Frontage Road (just east of the intersection of Interstate 30 and FM 1570) in Greenville,  with the loading of the turkeys and produce for the distribution sites. Volunteers must be able to life 50 pounds or more.

Applicants will need to bring their confirmation card on the day of the event. A separate confirmation card will be mailed for Christmas. No photocopies of confirmation cards or photo ID will be accepted.

There will be no other dates made available for Thanksgiving pickup, although applicants may list one other person who lives at their address to pick up their basket.
