Ways to Give Back this Thanksgiving

By  | 

As we gather together with family and friends to give thanks and enjoy a bountiful feasts, many right here in our community are hungry and need our help. This Thanksgiving Day, plan to give back, volunteer your time, and join nonprofit organizations to help to those in need.

Here are a few ways to volunteer this Thanksgiving in Montgomery County:

Volunteer to help feed those in Need:

  • Breakfast for Seniors: Meals on Wheels Montgomery County is delivering breakfast bags on Thanksgiving morning at 10:30am. Turkey Day Treat bags provide a nonperishable holiday supplemental meal for local seniors on a day they might not have family to gather with.  It’s more than a meal, it is the visit from you that makes them smile. Sign up to help deliver breakfast.
  • Spring Woodlands Ministries

Run for a Cause: 

  • 28th Annual YMCA Run Thru the Woods: A local Thanksgiving morning tradition, YMCA Run Thru the Woods has supported local non-profits with the goal of strengthening The Woodlands, Spring and Oak Ridge communities for 27 years. The event brings thousands of community members together for entertainment and runs/walks designed for all ages. Register here.

Walk a Shelter Dog:

  • Thanksgiving Day Dog Walking: Come on out early to get your turkey trot on and help walk the shelter dogs too at the Montgomery County Animal Shelter from 8 to 10 a.m. Learn more. 

…and so much more! Did we miss an event or a way to give back? Please email our team at to add an activity to the list.

From our family to yours, we hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
