It's hard to think about Thanksgiving when it isn't even Halloween, but donations are needed to fund this year's Thanksgiving Baskets. Every year, our church is blessed to be able to provide baskets to needy families in the Knoxville area. This year we are also helping Fran Lynch and Willow UMC in Willow, Alaska, provide baskets to their community. For this to happen we need donations to purchase the food items here and in Willow. We also will need people to assemble and deliver the baskets in our area. Getting involved in this ministry is easy!
• Provide a monetary donation to buy food items, make checks payable to Church Street UMC and note “Thanksgiving Basket” on your check. A suggested donation of $50 will pay for one basket in Knoxville or Willow. You can also give online by clicking here.
• Assemble baskets for the Knoxville area by coming to the Gym on Thursday evening, November 21, at 6:30 p.m. A pizza snack will be provided.
• Deliver the baskets by coming to the Gym on Sunday, November 24, following Sunday School or 11 a.m. Worship to pick up a basket for a family near your home to be delivered on that afternoon.
