Thanksgiving is approaching fast and there are so many residents of New Kent County that are in need of your support especially during this time. The New Kent Department of Social Services (DSS) is asking for your help!

DSS will accept all donations including turkeys, potatoes, yams, pies, etc. Still unsure about what to donate? Here are some suggestions.
  • Create a gift basket: containing items that you would need to make a Thanksgiving meal

  • Make a cash donation
Whatever donation you choose, all is very much appreciated.  

Please Note:
