Shane Gives Thanks Inc began in 2014 with a 7 year old named Shane, a question and a Idea, why are people hungry in his town? With the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday approaching, Shane quickly learned that everyone that was hungry just couldn't go to Grandma's house to eat, but knew that no one should go without. With that mission in mind, Shane approached his local food pantry and local church and filled thanksgiving boxes by number. Year to date Shane has filled 244 Thanksgiving baskets. But that didn't stop Shane there. Shane developed a program called Peyton Packs, named after his sister as a way for her to be involved, provides students a pack full of food for the weekend. Each pack contains 2 breakfast, 2 lunch, 10 snacks, fruit, vegetable, juice or shelf milk option. But Shane set his goals high, he wanted to open a food pantry but always thought it was too far away. In the winter of 2016 Shane was offered the opportunity to become a food pantry serving our town, Shane happily accepted the opportunity. And in December 2016 opened the Shane Gives Thanks Food Pantry now serving over 600 clients. Now 11, Shane is the backbone of this charity. Understanding that Charity means, None of Shane's Volunteers (including board members) receive a paycheck. 100% is invested in helping those in need, as Shane Says "No one should go without."
