About us

Thanksgiving Meals to Families in Need

The Byron Saunders Foundation is a non-profit organization created with the mission of providing Thanksgiving meals to families in need in Central Ohio and surrounding counties.

We count on the generosity of the community to help make this possible. During the holiday months, the need for assistance to families increases. It is with community support through volunteer time, food and monetary donations that we were able to provide 5,000 families a Thanksgiving meal last year.

Hold a Food Drive To Help Our Foundation!

A fantastic way to help us out is to hold a food drive at your location, whether you are a church, a school, business or organization, ask your customers, students or members to bring packaged Thanksgiving food items or make cash donations. We will make sure they get to those who need it most!
