During the holiday months, the need for assistance to families tends to increase.
Do you or someone you know need a Thanksgiving dinner this year? Let us know so we can get them added to list and deliver their meals in time for Thanksgiving.
The annual goal for the Byron Saunders Foundation is to provide Thanksgiving meals to 2,000 families. This goal would not be possible without the generosity of so many in the community who willingly give their time, talent and treasures.
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 tends to increase. It is with community support through volunteer time, food and monetary donations that we were able to provide 5,020 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!
