This Thanksgiving, families all around our community would like to gather around a table with loved ones and celebrate Thanksgiving Dinner. For many, this will not be possible. For one reason or another, they find themselves in a difficult situation—short on money and short on food. At times like this, we have the opportunity to be the Church. Doors have been opened for us to Partner with other local churches, public schools, and individuals to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our community. We are asking for your help to bless those in need this holiday by providing them with a full Thanksgiving meal.
Here’s how you can partner together with us to make this a reality. Our goal is to make 40 boxes, filled with the item list below, to help 40 families. We estimate we will get 22 boxes from groups so if any individual families who would like to make more would help us reach our goal.
If you would like to partner with us in sharing love to those in need, we ask that you do the following:
Sign up in the church cafe with your information by Nov. 4th.
Take an empty box and a list of needed items (located at the table in the cafe).
Return your completed box to the cafe at the church along with $10 to help cover the cost of the turkey no later than Sunday November 11th. Box recipients who have signed up ahead of time will come and pick up these boxes, along with a turkey purchased by the church, on November 19th at Church.
NOTE: Please make sure the box you bring in is complete. Last year we had a few incomplete boxes and it caused some stress on the volunteers. Thank you for your willingness to help serve and live with purpose in our community!
