The Town of Chevy Chase is asking for donations to help make 115 Thanksgiving dinner baskets for MCPS families in need.
Students from Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School and the Jane E. Lawton Community Center will also take part. The baskets will go to families of Montgomery County students in the county’s Linkages to Learning program.
Through Nov. 15, those interested in donating can drop off a check payable to the B-CC PTSA or gift food cards from Giant and Safeway at the Town office or to Georgia Guhin at 4006 Rosemary St.
The entire Thanksgiving dinner runs $75, the turkey $25 and other groceries $50. Contact Town Community Relations Co-Chair Bridget Hartman at 301-654-4938 with any questions.
The dinner basket drive will also be incorporated into the Town’s annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot, set for noon on Sunday, Nov. 18 at Tarrytown Park (7500 block of Lynn Drive). After the mile walk on the Capital Crescent Trail to Elm Street Park, participants can head to Town Hall to help assemble and decorate the Thanksgiving baskets.
Those interested can RSVP through the Town office.
