Thanksgiving food baskets given to 44 local families

Press Release

A total of 44 needy Scottsville and Palmyra families gathered last month at the Scottsville Pavilion and Bethel Baptist Church Picnic Shelter to receive complimentary Thanksgiving foods baskets provided by the donors and volunteers of the James River Good Works Group. In total, the baskets made it possible for 218 people to enjoy a good family Thanksgiving in spite of their current circumstances.

Provisioning of the Thanksgiving Food Baskets was made possible by the private donations of six Scottsville restaurants, five other area merchants, and a men’s group. These 12 generous contributors included Amici’s Italian Bistro, Baine’s Books & Coffee, Baked by the James, the Batteau Restaurant, the Bread Basket, Hill Kids, James River Brewery, Lumpkins Restaurant, Scottsville Supply Company, SUMC Methodist Men, Tavern on the James, and Two Labs Coffee.

Each recipient family received in its basket a turkey or pack(s) of Cornish hens; boxes of mashed potatoes and stuffing; cans of green beans, corn, and cranberry sauce; packets of gravy, spices, and gourmet coffee; a container of dessert cupcakes; and a baglet of dinner rolls.  Turkey weight and foodstuff quantities were adjusted according to family size (which ranged from some single folks to families of 10).

The Thanksgiving Foods Baskets Project was organized by the James River Good Works Group ( and carried out by 14 of its volunteers. The Group is now engaged in a Helping Hands Christmas Food Drive in collaboration with the Town of Scottsville and Bread of Life.
