The Helena Food Share Turkey Challenge is up and running with the goal of putting together 2,500 holiday meals by Nov. 18.
A $20 donation buys all the side dishes needed for a family; $30 buys a turkey or ham for a family and $50 buys a complete Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday meal for a family.
The tradition continues this year at the Lewis and Clark Library but with a new twist. Rather than bringing turkeys, Helena Food Share is asking the community to make a donation online and then come to the library 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 18 to drop off any financial and canned food donations and join in a celebration of gratitude.
Cochrane Insurance will be matching up to $10,000 in donations on Nov. 18. Whether people come to the library with a check or donate online that day, the donation will be matched, Food Share representatives said.
