Thanksgiving Basket Collection Begins
This is the 7th year Crayton is running the project and she hopes this year she can feed even more than the 2,000 familes she fed last Thanksgiving.
Crayton will accept food and money donations and is looking for volunteers to help prepare the baskets. She is also hosting a Turkey-thon on November 12 at Columbia's Hy-Vee to give more people a chance to donate.
"I don't see any color. And all I know is people are in a position that need some help. And we want to be able to help them here in Boone County and Columbia, and say that hey, you know, you're just like family to us," city council member Almeta Crayton said.
Crayton says anyone who needs a thanksgiving basket can contact her. Anyone who is interested in helping out can also call her. All you have to do it stop by her office at 212 Lincoln Avenue to sign up. You can also call at 573-441-7069.
