Franklin Park teaming with North Hills charity for Thanksgiving food drive

Tony LaRussa

North Hills residents who want to help provide Thanksgiving Day dinners for needy families can drop off donations at the Franklin Park municipal offices.

The borough is teaming up with North Hills Community Outreach to collect food and cash donations as part of the Thanksgiving on Every Table program.

The items being collected include: large boxes of stuffing and instant mashed potatoes mix; cans of cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, vegetables, “easy” pumpkin pie mix and evaporated milk; cornbread and muffin mix; and napkins.

Grocery store gift certificates of $15 or more also are needed to provide turkey and other items for the holiday meal table.

Donations can be dropped off weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Oct. 12 to Nov 2 at the borough offices, 2344 West Ingomar Road.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
