The Editor: 

The Community Assistance Program (CAP) will be providing Thanksgiving dinner baskets again this year for those in our community with financial need. Last year, over 265 baskets were given out, and we anticipate the need will be as great or greater this year.

To fund this program, which is run completely by our fantastic volunteers, we rely solely on the generous contributions of community members and businesses. As we receive no government funding, your help is needed. If you have the means to help your neighbors in need, please mail your check to CAP Thanksgiving Basket Fund, P.O. Box 1067, Blaine, WA 98231. CAP is a 501(c)(3) organization and is registered with the Washington Secretary of State; all donations are fully tax-deductible.  Thank you for blessing those in our community who need it most.

The Thanksgiving basket program serves those with financial need, including families with children, seniors and those who are disabled, unemployed or under-employed, who reside in Blaine, Birch Bay, Custer and Point Roberts. 

If you qualify and would like to receive a Thanksgiving dinner basket, you must make a reservation between Tuesday, October 1 and Friday, November 15. Please visit blainecap.org for registration and details.  

Reservations can also be made by calling the Blaine School District Family Service Center at 360/332-0740 by Friday, November 15. Baskets are to be picked up on Tuesday, November 26, between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., at unit 200 in the Cost Cutter shopping center. A specific pick-up time will be assigned to you once you are registered. Baskets will not be available without a reservation.
