TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The 54th annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner is Thursday and organizers are asking the community for help.

The Community Thanksgiving Dinner Foundation is in need of several non-perishable items.

Foundation President, David Braun says donations are down this year.

Non-perishable items needed are canned green beans, canned sweet potatoes, boxed dressing, boxed instant potatoes, canned jellied cranberry sauce, canned milk, canned chicken broth, white sugar, and brown sugar.

For the second year in a row, the meal won’t be served in the Agriculture Hall on the grounds of the Stormont Vail Events Center.

Instead, volunteers will deliver meals to those who request them in advance.

If you would like to volunteer for the Community Thanksgiving Dinner you can visit their website or call their volunteer hotline (785) 354-1744.

Non-perishable food items can be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Nov. 22 to 24 at the Agriculture Hall, located near S.W. 17th and Tyler streets.
