Thanksgiving at Helpline House


Holiday Foods-non-perishables: please deliver non-perishable holiday foods (canned/packaged) from MONDAY, NOVEMBER 2 through FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13. Frozen turkeys can also be accepted during this time. Hours for donations: 9am to 4:30pm on weekdays. We will also be open on Saturday November 14 from 10am to 3pm to receive food donations.

Holiday Foods-perishables: please deliver perishable, refrigerated or frozen food items (i.e., turkeys, turkey roasts/breasts) on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20 or SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21. Hours for donations: 9am to 4:30pm on Friday and 10am to 3pm on Saturday. Please note that our customers prefer small (10 to 12 pound) turkeys. We do not have freezer space for larger birds. Turkey roasts and turkey breasts, as well as small hams, are even more popular than turkeys.

Food drives: if you are planning a food drive, or have more than a couple of bags/boxes of food, please contact us to confirm when we can handle your delivery. Contact: or 206.842.7621. Please plan your food drive so that delivery to us can be made by November 14..

If you, or someone you know, are in need of food, please visit Helpline House or call us at 842-7621 to find out about food bank registration. The only documentation needed is proof of residency on Bainbridge Island; no income information is requested for food assistance.
