HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED:
Thanksgiving Gift Cards
In keeping with our traditional spirit of spreading love during Thanksgiving, the Missions Team will be collecting donations on the patio again this year. Using these donations, we will supply some of our struggling neighbors with gift cards to help them purchase their groceries for a Thanksgiving meal.As you may remember, last year we switched from delivering turkeys and grocery items to providing gift cards due to a variety of circumstances. We received such positive feedback from the recipients about the gift cards, we plan to do the same again this year.Our plan is to deliver $60 gift cards to 100 families on the afternoon of Sunday, November 19.
Donations may be made on the patio, in the offering baskets, or online. Please notate “Thanksgiving Gift Cards” on your donation, or use the envelopes found in the pews. Although the gift cards will be for $60, any amount is gratefully accepted. If you would like to claim a tax deduction for this donation, write your name on the envelope.
Help is needed to deliver the gift cards and make phone calls notifying them when to expect the cards. A Spanish-speaking volunteer for phone calls is needed. There will be a signup roster on the patio beginning October 22 to volunteer for these tasks.
