Volunteers assemble 600 Thanksgiving baskets

Posted: Updated:

Volunteers assembled 600 Thanksgiving baskets on Saturday at the Union Gospel Mission in Downtown Portland.

The Thanksgiving food baskets were distributed to families and individuals in need through a network of other nonprofits, churches, as well as at Union Gospel Mission.

The Thanksgiving food basket contains everything needed for a traditional meal such as vegetables, boxed stuffing, gravy mix, yams, dinner rolls and more. Each Thanksgiving basket includes a voucher for a turkey.

The food and the turkey vouchers for the Thanksgiving baskets were provided by donors as part of Union Gospel Mission's annual "Paper Turkey" online fundraising campaign.
