Thanksgiving Information

The annual CCHASM Thanksgiving Meal Program has been around for years serving our neighbors in need.

Here is a time-lapse video showing the donations, assembly, and collaboration at the County Fairgrounds.

“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our Thanksgiving.” – W.T. Purkiser

For Thanksgiving 2023, please consider making non-perishable food donations and a $20 grocery gift card (increased from $15 in prior years). 

In 2022, CCHASM assisted 12,535 adults and children in Chesterfield County, Colonial Heights, Dinwiddie, Hopewell, Petersburg, and Prince George.

Your generous donations helped us reach our goal! We assisted with 4,192 Thanksgiving Meal Bags and a $15  grocery gift card for perishable items such as butter, fresh vegetables, and a turkey. 

Here are video clips to learn more about the annual Thanksgiving Meal Program.
