ST. LOUIS — The Urban League of St. Louis is teaming up with Schnucks and TIAA Bank to give away food for Thanksgiving to more than 5,000 families this holiday season.

The first of the giveaway events is Saturday afternoon from noon to 3 p.m. at the Urban League’s headquarters at 1408 North Kingshighway.

The Urban League said they will also provide PPE masks.

“The devastating and lingering impact of the coronavirus pandemic is creating even more need in the community,” said Michael P. McMillan, President and CEO of the Urban League. “We are fortunate to have the support of Schnucks and TIAA Bank to help put food on the table giving families one less thing to worry about during this trying time.”
