Bread of Compassion Domestic Humanitarian Aid 

Bread of Compassion launched OPERATION TURKEY EXPRESS this past Thanksgiving.  Dozens of volunteers helped to sort thousands of bags of groceries for over 600 families in Metrowest Boston.

Bread of Compassion purchased over 500 of these turkeys and provided low income families a complete Thanksgiving dinner which included fresh vegetables, and all the trimmings for a traditional meal.

In the weeks prior to Thanksgiving, BOC volunteers received donations from local grocery stores to help fill these baskets. Many hours were spent organizing and packing-up hundreds of food baskets.



Most of the food came through the Celebration International Church food pantry in Wayland, Massachusetts. 

The Thanksgiving food baskets were distributed by a team of volunteers on the Saturday before Thanksgiving in Wayland and in downtown Framingham.

This is an annual event that Bread of Compassion participates in to meet the needs of families in the Metrowest area of Boston
