2. Opt to safely pick up your t-shirt at a Y location OR have it shipped.

3. Help local families experiencing food insecurity by dropping off non-perishable and canned food items during t-shirt pickup week (November 16-21) or stop by any Y location to donate.

4. Print your downloadable bib (optional) and run or walk with friends and family anywhere you choose Thanksgiving week :)

5. Celebrate for having done something good for your family and for your community.
