STOP CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN

Culpeper Times • November 1-7, 2018

Food Closet hosts 'buy-a-bird' The Culpeper Food Closet has kicked off its annual "Buy-a-Bird" campaign. For the past several years, thos in need in the Culpeper community have been provicded with the necessary makings for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. SWIFT, Culpeper Human Services and the Culpeper Food Closet coordinate the efforts and resoureces that make the event successful. The Culpeper Food Closet spearheads the program by purchasing the turkeys, while SWIFT provides the fixin's such as potatoes, dressing, veggies, etc. Culpeper Human Services receives and evaluates each application before passing them on to the Culpeper Food Closet for final processing. Prior to the event, Nov. 17, SWIFT will pack all the fixings in tote bags based on the number of people in each family that qualifies. On the day of distribution, recipients will start arriving at the Davis Street parking lot by 8 a.m. The average cost of each frozen turkey is $15 and we are always looking for donations. Last year we distributed 530 turkeys, helping 90 elderly and shut ins. That's a total of 1,450 Thanksgiving

meals. As the Culpeper Food Closet approaches the end of the year, they are running at a deficit of $13,000. The Food Closet serves more than 350 families each month, averaging approximately 11,000 meals. The Culpeper Food Closet receives no funds from local, state or federal agencies. If you or your organization would like to contribute call or email Billy Green at 540-547-2342, billyandjulia@ vabb.com.
