What is THX?

THX is an annual community outreach initiative that serves Salem families in need on Thanksgiving day. Each year, hundreds of volunteers come together to deliver fully-cooked Thanksgiving meals, Christmas trees, and gifts to homes throughout our community on Thanksgiving morning. Originally begun in 2008 as a way to serve families at one local elementary school, the program has grown over the years and increased its reach to multiple Salem schools and neighborhoods. In 2018, THX is expected to serve upwards of 400 families (nearly 2000 people) on Thanksgiving.

"We had meals delivered to our house for the last three years. This year, though, we decided to help deliver meals to someone else instead. The experience has been amazing!"
