Thanksgiving Baskets Event 2020
This ministry provides baskets of food to hundreds of families during the Thanksgiving Holiday.
This year's event will be held Saturday, November 21st, with basket drop-off from at 8-10am, and deliveries beginning at 9:00am.
COVID-19 UPDATE: We are planning on holding the event with some modifications in place. We are in need of drivers to drive to individual homes and agencies. We also need volunteers in the parking lot to help unload/load baskets.
We will be utilizing social distancing in the Social Hall and limiting the number of people inside at one time with a line at the door, and marks on the floor at the map tables.
We are asking all volunteers to wear masks in the Social Hall and the parking lot at all times.
BREAKFAST WILL NOT BE SERVED.
Thank you so much for your patience and understanding!
