WestCMR partners with the Town of Belleair for annual “Adopt-a-Family” Thanksgiving Program

For years, the Town of Belleair Parks & Recreation department has been helping families in need around the Thanksgiving holiday. WestCMR’s involvement in the program started through our CEO Randy Ware, who, as a good neighbor, bought turkeys to donate one year. Since then, we have participated in the “Adopt-a-Family” program every November.

Adopt-a-Family is a wonderful program that benefits underprivileged families in the Belleair area. Through donations from individuals and organizations, and coordinated efforts of the Parks & Department team, these families receive a FULL Thanksgiving meal, plus household items, at no cost to them.

This year, WestCMR was able to provide the following items:

  • 60 Cans of Sweet Potatoes/Yams
  • 60 Cans of Green Beans
  • 60 Cans of Peas
  • 60 Cans of Corn
  • 60 Cans of Soup
  • 20 Jars of Peanut Butter
  • 20 Jars of Jelly
  • 40 Cans of Broth
  • 40 Packets of Gravy
  • 40 Boxes of Rice
  • 40 Boxes of Stuffing
  • 40 Bags of Potatoes
  • 40 Jars of Spaghetti Sauce
  • 40 Boxes of Pasta
  • 40 Boxes of Cereal
  • 40 Cans of Chili
  • 160 Toothbrushes
  • 80 Tubes of Toothpaste
  • 80 Deodorants
  • 40 – 4 Packs Toilet Paper
  • 40 – 2 Packs Paper Towels
  • 40 Bottles Shampoo
  • 40 Bottles Conditioner
  • 40 Bottles Hand Soap
  • 80 Bars of Bath Soap
