Thanksgiving Drive-Thru Event Five Weeks Away & Gearing Up
Our Thanksgiving drive-thru event (the first part of the Thanksgiving & Christmas Shoppe) is fast approaching … November 19.
Referrals are rolling in. We hope to serve 50 families at the Thanksgiving event and up to 200 children in need. Our focus is essentials — coats, shoes, or a blanket; underwear and socks; and a family activity. These necessities will be given in addition to the Thanksgiving food basket each family will receive.
We now know some of the specific sizes and items we will need for the Thanksgiving drive-thru. If you’d like to donate new children’s coats or shoes, contact Nancy Kile (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Vicki Hinkel (email@example.com).
Our Christmas drive-thru event (December 5) will serve 50 different families and, hopefully, will include a few toys for the children.
Thanks you, church, for your consistently compassionate responses to our community in need. Let’s love our neighbors well this Thanksgiving and Christmas.
