More than 50 volunteers will come together at the Lighthouse Youth Center, 55 W. Philadelphia St., to prepare and pack 1,700 Thanksgiving food baskets for the needy people of York County.

The baskets will be packed between 8 a.m. and noon Monday and ready for pickup or delivery on Tuesday, Nov. 20.

This is a very extensive, precise, organized operation. The center asks volunteers to RSVP by Wednesday by calling Ada Hite at (717) 812-1692.
