Thanksgiving Baskets

Every year, our church is blessed to be able to provide Thanksgiving 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.  Here’s how you can get involved:

• 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.    
• Assemble baskets for our area by coming to the Gym on Thursday afternoon, November 21, beginning 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.
