COLORADO SPRINGS — Silver Key Senior Services needs donations to help provide low-income seniors with a Thanksgiving Day meal.

It's part of their "Bountiful Bags" drive.

These are the items they're asking for:

  • Cranberry Sauce (Whole Berry or Jellied, 14 or 16 oz. cans)
  • Instant Mashed Potatoes
  • Dry Stuffing/Dressing, 6 oz. boxes
  • Turkey Gravy DryMix: 0.87 (7/8) oz. packets
  • Yams/Sweet
  • Potatoes: 29 oz. cans

Volunteers hope to provide 1,200 meals for elderly folks who are on their own.

"For too many, they sit isolated, they sit alone," explained Derek Wilson, Director of Development and Donor Relations at Silver Key.
"Like all of us, you wanna have a Thanksgiving meal [...] with friends and family, so we want to be able to provide that so they can feel that normalcy."
