Thanksgiving Project Social Media Toolkit
Thank you for helping us spread the word about United Way’s 23rd Annual Thanksgiving Project!
This is our largest and most important Thanksgiving Project ever. As inflation reaches a 40-year high and our communities continue to recover from the public health and economic impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, nearly 1 in 5 households in the Commonwealth is struggling with food insecurity. United Way is prepared to meet the rising needs of our communities and we are grateful for your support in providing more than 20,000 local families with a Thanksgiving meal!
We created this toolkit to make it easy for you to share on social media. Don’t forget to tag United Way of Massachusetts Bay in your posts using the handles listed below.
