For 2021, 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.
If you would like to receive a Thanksgiving basket, please call Christian Services at (517) 394-5411 and ask to be put on their list.
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. We ask that food be brought to the church on November 18th from 10am-4pm or November 19th from 4-6pm.
We are also asking for volunteers to deliver the food baskets sometime between November 20-23rd. Baskets can be picked up for delivery at the church between November 19-23rd. 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.
