PLEASE DROP OFF ALL DONATIONS AT CHURCH BY FRIDAY NOVEMBER 20TH.
THREE WAYS TO PARTICIPATE:
1) DONATE A COMPLETE FOOD BASKET: You can shop for the items listed or purchase a prepared bag at a participating grocery store. Please bring your completed bags to Res by Friday, November 20th. Put them in the bin by the back door of the church. Please use a reusable grocery bag or a double brown grocery bag inserted in a double plastic bag and pack your bags with the heaviest items on the bottom. Please include ONLY the following items:
2) PURCHASE OR FUND A $20 GIANT GIFT CARD: We will include a $20 Giant gift card in each food basket for a turkey or ham. Please put a $20 Giant gift card, a check (payable to Church of the Resurrection), or $20 in an envelope marked Thanksgiving Turkey. You may put your envelope in the offertory boxes on Sunday or send it to church, c/o Kate Chambers. We are only accepting GIANT gift cards since this is a grocery near Belair-Edison.
3) DELIVER THE FOOD BASKETS: Help deliver the food baskets to a few Belair-Edison families! Gather your family and stop by Res on the afternoon of November 21 to pick up some baskets. We will have a list with the names and addresses of a few families for you. Deliveries need to be made on November 21st or 22nd. Click here to sign up.
A final note of encouragement: When Michelle Chase shared our plan to help with Thanksgiving food baskets with the Community Coordinator at the local elementary school in Belair-Edison, she was SO excited! The Coordinator had been praying that the school would be able to provide Thanksgiving meals to 50 of their families. The day after she prayed that, Michelle sent an email saying that we could help. The Coordinator was blown away by the way that God answered her very specific prayer! Praise God for hearing and answering. This is awesome confirmation that we are following His leading!
