The Action Center Set To Provide Supplies for 5,700 Meals This Thanksgiving

11/12/2019
Event Title Sponsor Terumo BCT Working to Unlock the Potential of Community

​​LAKEWOOD, Colo. ​ The Action Center​ is preparing for its Annual Thanksgiving Distribution in which the human-service non-profit will provide over 1,400 meal kits to households in need this holiday season. These meal kits, filled with all the "fixin's," will create over 5,700 meals. This year's event will take place at Jeffco Stadium on Sunday, November 24, 2019, from
9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Nearly two-thirds of Colorado households are struggling to cover basic needs. This event meets some of the critical needs during a financially straining time for many families. The families that we serve are too often forced to choose between putting food on the table and paying the bills during the holiday season. We are grateful that we are able to help alleviate some of that burden.

 -The Action Center Executive Director Pam Brier

Thanks to this year's distribution title sponsor,
Terumo BCT, a Lakewood-based, mission-driven medical device company focused on positively impacting patients by unlocking the potential of blood and cell-based therapies, The Action Center will be able to serve these families quickly and efficiently through the unique drive-thru distribution. Each household will receive a meal kit filled with goods such as potatoes, vegetables, stuffing, gravy, dessert mixes, and a gift card for turkey or ham at local grocery stores.

 


Supporting The Action Center's annual Thanksgiving meal distribution is a tangible way for Terumo BCT's associates to help unlock the potential of our community by providing both financial and volunteer support. Ensuring that each family can celebrate Thanksgiving with a warm meal helps connect us to each other and strengthens our community.

-Terumo BCT President and CEO Antoinette Gawin
