THANKSGIVING BASKETS - November

Every Thanksgiving the congregation donates enough food to fill an average of 35 boxes which are donated to families in need from the surrounding community.  Traditionally the entire congregation participates in some way to make this happen - members donate specific food items or money to purchase the perishable items (turkeys, milk, butter, etc.,), the young children help move the items from the donated area to the packing area while learning a lesson about serving, the teens and families help assemble and "stuff" the boxes FULL, and families help drive to deliver the boxes!  It is truly a group effort.  It takes a great amount of pre-planning and we are grateful that this ministry has been such a success in blessing so many through the years.
