Thanksgiving Dinner in a Box

Thank You!

On Monday, November 21, the Town of Frederick, Carbon Valley Help Center, Frederick High School Student Council, and Rocky Mountain Christian Church came together to provide 120 families in need with a complete Thanksgiving Dinner In A Box. Special thanks to the folks who donated food and money and to Oxy for sponsoring this year’s pie program!


Each year we come together for our “Thanksgiving Dinner In A Box” community program! The Town of Frederick, Frederick High School Student Council, Carbon Valley Help Center, Rocky Mountain Christian Church, and the Weld County Food Bank partner each year to provide dinner to those in need.
