Az. Nonprofit Short On Thanksgiving Dinners For Thousands Of Homeless Families

More than 20,000 people in Phoenix, including hundreds of homeless children, may go without Thanksgiving dinners this holiday season, according to The Arizona Republic.

The Real Gift Foundation, a local nonprofit that serves Arizona's homeless children year round, has provided turkeys and fixings for more than a decade to the less fortunate. This year, though, the foundation is more than $80,000 short of the amount it needs to make the deliveries -- and fears Phoenix's homeless children will go without this holiday season.

The nonprofit's president, Conde Rogers, told the Republic:

"If we don't raise it, we can't deliver. It's really an opportunity for the people in Phoenix to step up and take care of every one of our brothers and sisters."

A $25 donation will feed a family of six. To play your part, visit The Real Gift.
