Thanksgiving Food Drive kicks off a season of giving at RTN Federal Credit Union
WALTHAM, MA (November 16, 2016) — RTN’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive is taking place during the month of November. Staff and members are collecting food in communities where RTN branches are located to help make sure families in need can enjoy Thanksgiving dinner.
RTN’s Waltham branch provides a complete Thanksgiving dinner for four Waltham families. As in past years, Tom Scafidi, owner of the Common Café in Waltham, is donating the turkeys, and RTN is collecting the rest.
Suggested items for donations include canned vegetables, cranberry sauce, chicken broth, gravy, fresh fruit and vegetables, apple cider, breads, stuffing, nuts, pasta and sauce, dried beans, rice, deserts, and supermarket gift cards.
The Thanksgiving Food Drive is organized through the RTN Employees Community Outreach Committee, which consists of RTN employees who contribute funds and volunteer to assist local organizations and charities throughout the year.
