I read an article last week that Thanksgiving is going to cost 13% more this year.  That's going to make it harder on everyone.  So if you're able, head over to the Galleria and drop off some canned food for the Salvation Army. 

During these financially challenging times for local families, CambridgeSide Galleria is working with The Salvation Army to collect canned goods that will feed more than 1,200 people on Thanksgiving Day. From now until Sunday November 20, 2011, CambridgeSide Galleria is asking their customers to bring a canned food or baby food item to the drop off center at the Customer Service on Level 2. These donated items will help The Salvation Army create 250+ Thanksgiving food baskets that will be delivered to struggling families throughout Cambridge and Somerville.

The Salvation Army of Cambridge & Somerville makes special efforts to assist individuals and families during the Holiday season with food baskets, toys, and winter clothing. As part of their holiday efforts, over 400 Teddy Bears are decorated and dressed for children in need. Over 300+ Thanksgiving turkeys are given to families in need. Once Thanksgiving is past, they then supply these same families with holiday gifts that will make the season a little brighter. Applications for Christmas assistance will be accepted December 5-9, 2011.
