Please Pass the Gravy

I love Thanksgiving. I love the focus on being thankful. I love the amount of time I get to spend with my family. I love mashed potatoes and gravy in ways that could probably make you blush. But the point is, Thanksgiving is such a special time of year. We all have so much to be thankful for.

But the thing is, not everyone is able to celebrate and enjoy their Thanksgiving holiday. Some people are worried about their next meal. A big Thanksgiving dinner is not a luxury, or a reality, that they can afford.

We know this is going to sound crazy, but we wanted to give back to the community that we love before we truly become a part of it. And we’re hoping that you will want to join us in making this holiday season a little more special for someone else. We know we’re the new moms on the block. And we know that this is a lot to ask. But we also would love to celebrate the launch of this Sacramento Area love-fest by sharing that love with a family that needs it most.


This Friday, Cap City Moms will holding a food drive for those who need a bit of help this holiday season. All food collected will be donated to Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services to support their wonderful food programs. We will be prepared to accept donations of frozen turkeys and items that are listed here on their food wish list. Our event details and information are as follows:

Cap City Moms Holiday Food Drive
Date: Friday, November 22, 2013
Time:7am – 10am
Location: The parking lot of Bel Air 3250 Arena Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95834
(Located on the corner of Arena Blvd & Duckhorn Drive. We will be closer to Arena Blvd.)

If you can’t make it to the food drive, you can always make a donation on-line here.

We are so grateful that we have this amazing community that wants to help. Even if y’all think we’re completely insane. (That’s ok, too.) We just want to help. And we want to bring some holiday spirit to those that may be having a hard time finding theirs.

Thank you all for being a part of something so wonderful,
Cap City Moms
