Project Thanksgiving 2020

Dear Partner Agency:

We are so excited to share that our partnership with United Way PBC and CBS 12’s annual Project Thanksgiving2020 begins soon. This program provides holiday gift cards to local families in need, thanks to the generous contributions of viewers and local sponsors. The Palm Beach County Food Bank (PBCFB) has the privilege of administering the distribution activities with the support of the United Way of Palm Beach County and CBS Channel 12.

Please read the instructions fully and carefully. Partner agencies are required to apply each year and submit the online application by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, November 2, 2020. Late applications cannot be accepted – no exceptions.

Please keep in mind:
  • CBS 12’s Project Thanksgiving™  cannot fulfill all of the need in CBS 12's five-county viewing area (Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, and Okeechobee). 
  • There is no guarantee your agency will receive enough gift cards to serve all of the families you serve.  The number of gift cards available is based on the amount of money that is raised.
  • CBS's 12's Project Thanksgivinggift cards should be considered supplementary to your own fundraising campaigns and other resources.
  • Family Request Forms will NOT be required this year.  CBS 12's Project Thanksgiving was created to help the neediest in our community. We are relying on each agency to make sure gift cards go to families who need them the most. 
  • All applications must be submitted online.  Paper applications will not be accepted.
On the next page is a list of important deadlines and tentative distribution dates. We are looking forward to working with you to make this Thanksgiving a happy one for our community members in need!
