For 2020, Eastminster has committed to providing Thanksgiving food baskets for 10 families. The program, coordinated by Christian Services, will provide groceries to prepare a complete Thanksgiving meal.
We are asking congregation members to volunteer for one of two activities for this initiative. First, we are asking that members volunteer to purchase the items for a food basket to include 2-3 items from the optional list. Note that those who are concerned with entering a grocery story, Meijer and Kroger provides online shopping with pickup or delivery services. We ask that food be brought to the church on November 19th from 10am-3pm or November 20th from 4-6pm.
We are also asking for volunteers to deliver the food baskets sometime between November 21-24th. Baskets can be picked up for delivery at the church between November 20-24th. Each basket will have the name and phone number of the family to receive the basket. We ask the volunteers who agree to deliver the baskets to call the recipients and arrange a time the baskets can be dropped off.
