The committee will be reaching out to previous donors, churches and other organizations who have made generous contributions for the previous years’ dinner but there is always a need for monetary donations to assist with items that are not donated. To donate please send donations payable to Seneca County House of Concern, 35 State Street, Seneca Falls, NY 13148 or online at houseofconcern.org with the notation of Thanksgiving Dinner in the memo line.
