  • CTK will provide a disposable roasting pan to each recipient, so there is no need to buy one.

  • Be creative – feel free to add some special treats or have your children decorate the bin.

  • Please bring your groceries in an 18-gallon plastic tote box with lid large enough to hold all purchases to CTK parking lot Saturday, November 17 between 8:00 and 9:00 am. Please indicate the size of the turkey on the outside of your basket using masking tape or post-it note.
