There’s nothing quite like gathering around a table and enjoying food, family, and friends at Thanksgiving. However, this holiday some families are struggling to put food on their table. Maybe some of you are wondering if your family and friends can gather around a table in person.
FBCSA is offering the opportunity to share your food and gather around 100 tables! No, we aren’t asking you to physically enter people’s homes. Instead, through your gifts of food, finances and/or time you can give 100 families a reason to look to the Savior for the blessings they receive. Are you ready to join Community Missions? Let’s be the Family of God to those without a family!
WAYS YOU CAN HELP:
Join us on Wednesday, November 18th, 9am-12pm in the Fellowship Hall, to help pack all the non-refrigerated food items in individual bags.
Volunteer to serve curbside, running carts and reloading them, loading up cars, and adding the fresh produce and frozen chickens to bags.
Teams will deliver up to 4 families and socially distance love on them. Assignments will be given in advance so your family can pray for these families. You will also need to call to confirm they will be home on Saturday, November 21st. Food items can be picked up on the 21st between 9am and Noon. Delivery could take up to 2 hours depending on locations of families
