Please turn in your filled bags and/or funds by Sun, Nov 13
How it works:
  • Volunteers pick up a reusable cloth bag at the church
  • Purchase the items on the attached list OR you can use the shopping list to purchase the items on the list
  • Return the bag (or the groceries) along with a check for $35* by Nov 13. Bring to the Worship Center on Sunday mornings or the Student Ministries offices Monday - Thursday

* The $35 will be used to purchase a fully cooked frozen turkey or a voucher for a turkey or ham; dinner rolls and a pie for each family. 

For those who are unable to do the shopping, you can donate $60 and we will do the shopping.

Other Ways to Help

Phone callers:  During the week before we deliver, we need people to call the recipients to remind them that we will be coming on Sunday and to have someone available to accept the food.  We especially need Spanish speakers to help make calls

Grocery Shoppers:  we need a couple of people who can grocery shop during week before delivery.

Car loaders:  On Sunday, November 20 from 11:30-1:00, we need people to help load the groceries into the cars that will be delivering.
