Thanksgiving is exactly two weeks away so it's time to start dropping off turkeys at the Missoula Food Bank. The bonus is, every turkey will count toward our pound total for Can The Cats!

Remember last year, the week of Thanksgiving the Food Bank had only received 10 turkey donations, seriously, ten! Then at the last minute, the generous people of Missoula stepped up and made donations and every family who needed a turkey, got one. Let's not wait until the last minute this year, when you buy your own turkey, please grab an extra and drop it off at 1720 Wyoming, kitty corner from Westside Lanes bowling alley. Drop off hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., you can pull right up to the back door drop off spot.

Can The Cats is going strong until Friday, November 20th at 7:30 p.m. Until then, you can drop of non perishables (Stove Top stuffing, canned goods, ramen, pasta, mac n' cheese, peanut butter, for example) at the following locations.
