Frederick Youth Commission Announces

2014 Thanksgiving Dinner in a Box

Donations and nominations being accepted through November 14th

 FREDERICK, Colorado (October 24, 2014) – The Frederick Youth Commission will be providing Thanksgiving Dinner in a Box to 30 families in need throughout Frederick, Firestone and Dacono and are asking for the community’s help with monetary and food donations as well as family nominations to find those most in need of some help this holiday season.

 “Our community has always been so great at giving when there is a need that this year we are doubling our effort from fifteen to 30 boxes,” said Youth Commission Chairperson, Dylan Dufour. “We try to provide everything that someone would need for a great Thanksgiving meal, so monetary donations are used to buy the perishable food like pumpkin pies, milk and butter the day before we deliver them.”

 A nomination form is available at Frederick Town Hall, on Frederick's website or you can also email to obtain a form. Monetary and non-perishable food donations can be taken to Frederick High School (5690 Tipple Pkwy) Monday through Friday from 12-3 p.m. or Frederick Town Hall (401 Locust St.) Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. All nominations and donations are due Friday November 14th. The Youth Commission and Frederick High School Principal Pete Vargas will shop for perishable items and will personally deliver the boxes on Monday November 24th.

 Suggested items for food donations include: canned corn, canned green beans, canned yams/sweet potatoes, instant mashed potatoes, salt, pepper, canned cranberry sauce, boxed stuffing, turkey gravy mix, french fried onions, cream of mushroom soup, canned black olives, Jell-O mix, canned fruit, canned/boxed broth, brown sugar, and mini marshmallows. Checks can be made payable to 'FHS Booster Club'.

 ABOUT THE TOWN OF FREDERICK –With its close proximity to the Denver metro area and the Northern Front Range, the Town of Frederick is a dynamic community at the center of commerce, industry and education. Multiple recreational and residential facilities make the Town of Frederick a retreat full of diverse opportunity that continues to respect its heritage as a mining town incorporated in 1907.

Tuesday, November 11th is Veteran’s Day. We would like to celebrate and honor Military Service Veterans again this year. Veterans are welcome to come between 8:45 and 10:45 to visit with classes, meet the students and share their stories.

Your family may also share a photo of a Veteran you know, past or present, preferably in uniform. If you would like to write about their service, and tell us a little about them, you may include that with the photo. We will put them in the display cases by the secondary gym and match them with your students’ pictures. We would prefer copies of any photos instead originals in case of loss or damage.

Please return the bottom this form to your child’s teacher if you know a Veteran who would like to come talk to classes and meet students on the morning of November 11. We would like the forms and the photos by November 4. We encourage you to go see the displays and other projects students have made to honor our Veteran’s on Open House night, November 11.


Thank you for your support,

Thunder Valley Staff Members

¡Gracias a los Veteranos!

El martes, el 11 de noviembre es el día de los Veteranos del servicio militar. Queremos honrarlos de nuevo este año. Los Veteranos serán bienvenidos entre las horas de las 8:45-10:45 para visitar nuestros salones y compartir sus historias con nosotros.

Su familia también pueda mandar fotos de los Veteranos llevando los uniformes, preferible. Si quisiera escribir algo del servicio pueda incluirlo con el foto. Vamos a colgarlos cerca del gimnasio grande con fotos de su niño/a. Preferíamos las copias en vez de los originales en caso que se los dañan o se los pierdan.

Por favor llene esta forma y regrésela a la maestra si sabes un Veterano que le gustaría venir en el Día de los Veteranos. Queremos las formas y las fotos por el 4 de noviembre. Esperamos que vayan a ver las fotos y los otros proyectos que hicieron los estudiantes en Reunión de Padres el 11 de noviembre.
