Monetary & Goodie Bag Donations Sought for Home Delivered Thanksgiving Meals for Seniors


Dear Alpine Community Center Members,

The Alpine Community Center has been serving Thanksgiving meals to local seniors for 21 years! In the past we have had financial support from Aging and Independence Services; that help no longer exists. The purpose of this letter is to ask our community for assistance to feed those in need right here in Alpine.

We have a team of volunteers who assemble the meals and deliver them to the homes of seniors. The meal consists of: turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, green bean casserole, fruit salad, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie. We also put together “goodie” bags which contain tokens from our local Alpine businesses.

Please help us with a donation to support his program! We can use monetary donations, and/or things to go in our goodie bags. Your donation is tax deductible and we will provide you with a tax receipt. The senior citizens of Alpine will benefit greatly and will be very appreciative.

Fore more info please contact Cindi Robertson, Operations Manager at 619.445.7330 or email
