An annual tradition of CENTRO’s for the last 20 years, every Thanksgiving we put together baskets that contain a turkey and all things necessary to create a Thanksgiving feast. This includes things like mashed potatoes, squash, carrots, stuffing, apples, and the likes.

Every year Centro gives out between 350-400 turkey baskets. This year, thanks to our very generous donors, we have been able to almost double that amount and give out 640 baskets to Worcester and Fitchburg families in need.

The pandemic has greatly affected our community, leaving many out of work and in need of emergency food provisions. We have seen a drastic increase in clients visiting our food pantry this year. The CENTRO food pantry has worked diligently to help fill this need.

Our donors for this event included Fallon Health, Eden Rafferty Law Offices, La Mega Radio, Price Rite Marketplace, Worcester Recovery Center & Hospital, and The Worcester County Food Bank.
