With the year flying by, The GVTC Foundation’s largest event is just around the corner - the Thanksgiving Give Back Project! We're actively seeking donations for this year's initiative. Our goal is to provide an even greater number of Thanksgiving meals to families in need within our service area, and your involvement is key to making it happen!

This incredible endeavor kicks off early, with The GVTC Foundation beginning to raise monetary donations and collect canned goods as early as September. This campaign continues steadfastly through the second week of November. Then, on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, the dedicated GVTC employees, their families, and community volunteers come together to deliver these heartfelt meals.

To contribute, you have a few options:

Monetary Donations:

A donation of $40 will cover the cost of a complete meal for one family.

You can make a money donation by clicking here or by giving us a call at 830-885-8450.
