Hosea Helps Partners with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. To Feed Families This Thanksgiving Holiday

by November 19, 2021

Hosea Helps, Inc. announced this year’s holiday events would be another historic first for the organization battling against the Covid-19 pandemic. Hosea Helps will hold the annual Thanksgiving food distributions one week before the holiday to better provide for families in need. This pivot allows them to distribute all of the fixings for a delicious holiday meal in time for families to prepare and serve on the actual holiday.

Hosea Helps is working with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., a world-renowned service organization, to kick off the 2021 Holiday Food Drive. This extraordinary group of women will lead the charge in donating poultry, canned goods, pantry items, and toys. This historic holiday event will be a two-fold holiday giving extravaganza. This is the first time in history that Hosea Helps will be receiving in-kind donations and distributing food boxes and supplies simultaneously. Families Must pre-register on the website at www.4hosea.org.

The sponsors for the 2021 Holiday Festival of Services Include Kroger Foodstores/Honeysuckle White donating 500 turkeys, Publix Supermarkets donating 500 turkeys. There was an additional need for 1,000 turkeys to fill in the gap for families, and the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation heard the call and filled in the gap by donating turkeys for 500 families. Simon Guobadia donated 700 turkeys.  Chef Veek of Eat Urban Fresh Atlanta donated 500 turkey sandwiches for the homeless. Chris Tucker made a financial contribution.
