As The Island reported earlier this week, Alameda families in need are at risk of not participating in the tradition of a Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Donations of turkeys to the Alameda Food Bank are below where they typically are at this time of year, and it’s barely a week until Thanksgiving.

So far, the food bank has collected 226 of the 1,000 turkeys they hope to collect this holiday season (see our daily Turkey Ticker to the left); they’re hoping to have 500 of those by Tuesday to give to families for their Thanksgiving Day tables.

The folks at In Alameda are collecting cash donations, and they’re asking donors to pitch in at least $10 – enough for one turkey – to make sure that all Alamedans have the opportunity to join in the traditional meal of Thanksgiving. And you can help.

Just click here to help provide Alameda families with a turkey. And join InAlameda, The Island and others in helping your neighbors this holiday season.

You can also donate turkeys and nonperishable items directly to the food bank: They’re open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays over at 1900 Thau Way.

One more thing you can do: Spread the word by posting this text and link in your Facebook and Twitter accounts:

This holiday, Alameda families in need are at risk of not participating in the tradition of a Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Donations of turkeys to the Alameda Food Bank are below where they typically are at this time of year, and there’s less than a week until T-day. Will you join me, and other fellow Alamedans by donating at least $10 (one turkey) to make sure that all Alamedans have the opportunity to join in the traditional meal of Thanksgiving?
