STUART — This month, House of Hope is seeking donations at their pantry locations around Martin County and the Treasure Coast for their Holiday Meal program. The Holiday Meal program is in need of donations to provide nearly 400 Martin County households with a traditional turkey dinner for Thanksgiving.

If you are looking to donate you may visit any House of Hope pantry location. House of Hope will be accepting donations now through Nov. 16, 2018.

House of Hope has a list of nearly 400 Martin County residents who are eligible and in need of help this holiday season. From families with small children to the elderly, these households frequently come to the agency’s pantries for fresh produce, baked goods, dry ingredients, canned foods, frozen meat and more- but this Holiday Season they’re missing an essential traditional ingredient: Turkey.

Donors may bring fresh or frozen turkeys to any House of Hope location throughout Martin County, particularly the food distribution center at the agency’s main office in Stuart. A special arrangement has been made to allow House of Hope to purchase more turkeys at wholesale prices, so monetary donations are also very impactful.

House of Hope has pantry locations in Stuart, Hobe Sound, Indiantown, and Jensen Beach which are all prepared to accept donations of turkey, stuffing and any other non-perishable side dishes. Monetary donations can be accepted via hohmartin.org, called over the phone to (772) 286-4673 or mailed to 2484 SE Bonita Street, Stuart, FL 34997. To find a location nearest to you, visit hohmartin.org/locations.
