    How about a ‘giving basket’ where everyone brings a non-perishable food item that can then be donated to your local Food Bank? Your idea of the tree thing is good, but go one step further and have each family bring a special ornament for the tree. When you take the tree down, make sure you put those ornaments in a special place and bring them again next year to whoever is hosting Thanksgiving to put on That tree, and to add any others that might become appropriate (say for a new member, etc.)

    you could do something like using a plain tablecloth and have everyone write on it….every year add to it…

    we do a thanksgiving tree centerpeice. i put a branch in a vase with dirt to look like a tree trunk then everyone writes what their thankful for on a leaf and stick it on.

    watch a thanksgiving movie and string popcorn for tree

    We like to go to church services to give thanks to God. Maybe you can listen to hymns, or songs that give thanks, or read a poem, or a special Thanksgiving story. Also, I liked the answer below to bring some canned food that you can deliver later to a food bank.
