Donating a Meal

How it works:

  • Purchase the items on the attached list OR you can use the shopping list HERE to purchase the items on the list
  • Return the bag (or the groceries) along with a check for $35* by Nov 14. 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, can donate $60 and we will do the shopping.

  • by check - mark "Thanksgiving Meals" on the memo line

Deliver Meals

Pick-up Meals for Delivery:
Sunday, Nov 21
12:00 - 1:30 PM
The Ark (covered drive up in main parkin lot)
Meal Delivery: 1:00 - 3:00 PM

We need at least 150 families to deliver meals to one or two of the families who will be receiving the meals.  Our goal is to get everything delivered between 1:00 - 3:00 PM.

Sign-up to Deliver Meals

COVID-19 Delivery Info:  We will treat delivery like Uber Eats or HEB delivery where volunteers will come to the church and pick up the meal bags using a curbside pick-up process. Drivers will deliver bags by putting it on the porch,  ringing the doorbell and stepping back to make sure it is picked up while staying socially distant. 

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 21 from 12:15-1:30, we need people to help load the groceries into the cars that will be delivering.
