Each November members of the Rotary Club of Edina, along with members of the Edina Morningside Rotary Club, prepare and deliver Thanksgiving meals to families in need throughout the Twin Cities region. A roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberries, potatoes and gravy along with vegetables, oranges, even a delicious pie, make their way to area homes via active Rotarians and their families. With a side of warm knit mittens to help with the coming winter, these Thanksgiving Baskets bring some brightness and joy into the holiday season.
WHAT: Thanksgiving Basket Preparation and Delivery (85 baskets)

Members and their families participating in this year’s Thanksgiving Basket delivery will schedule a block of time at the Edina Country Club to assemble two to three meal baskets, departing for delivery immediately after the baskets are complete.  Team Captain name only should sign up for your group's time slot HERE.  Scroll through the full list to pick a time that will work for your group. Two team's per time slot can sign up. Your group size can be up to six people and should arrive all together at the check-in desk outside the ballroom a few minutes before your scheduled basket assembly time. 
Working in conjunction with the Edina Country Club, we propose to establish two assembly stations on separate sides of the large meeting room at the club. Participants are requested to arrive on time, masks required, be screened by greeters for COVID symptoms, then directed to their assembly station where Rotary volunteers will guide them in assembling their deliveries. Once the baskets are complete, member families will receive delivery information and locations, then depart the Country Club for delivery. After departure, the next two teams enter the meeting room.
There will be no sit-down luncheon for participants this year at the Country Club due to COVID concerns.
• Members will pack only for their delivery routes.
• Baskets may be delivered and placed at the front door for receiving families to take inside. All COVID precautions are to be followed in delivery: masks, six feet of physical separation, no entry into homes.
