Together Serve our Neighbors
THANKSGIVING MEAL OUTREACH
Annually, many churches join together to give free Thanksgiving meals to families in our community. Through the generosity of many churches, volunteers, businesses, and friends, we assemble complete, uncooked Thanksgiving Meal Boxes that local churches distribute to those in need. Most churches partner with neighborhood schools to determine families who would most benefit.
The week before Thanksgiving, volunteers fill boxes with everything you'd need to make a Thanksgiving meal for a family of four. Youth groups, friends, college athletes, retirees, and others come out for the packing party. And that's what it is, a party! This outreach has become a rhythm in our November calendar, and always proves to kick-off the holiday season with blessing.
