Thanksgiving Giving

ThanksgivingThanksgiving is right around the corner and there are many ways to help out in a number of different situations in the area.  The Rochester Cub Scouts already have helped the First Congregational Church of Rochester with filling shoeboxes with much needed items, such as clothes and soap and school supplies to be given out to children in need.  The Cub Scout Families also fill three large cardboard boxes with everything needed to make a great Thanksgiving dinner including gift cards to purchase  a turkey.  These are distributed to three families in the area who can benefit from the generosity.

Here is another way to help.  Visit the Acts 29 Project on Facebook to see how you can help

Blessings Everyone!
As you all know, Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away and we have a LOT left to do of we’re going to prepare over 2,000 meals!! We need YOUR help!
As of right now, we are still in need of turkeys, delivery drivers and mixed veggies. These things seem to be the most pressing right now.
-TURKEYS: must be at least 20lbs, frozen and dropped off to us on Sunday, 11/22.
-DELIVERY DRIVERS: will be responsible for delivering the meals on Thanksgiving Day between 11AM and 12PM. This is a HUGE blessing to both the deliverer and those receiving the meals. It’s only about 5-7 stops, but you’ll be bringing Thanksgiving to those who are alone on that day for many different reasons.

PLEASE consider being part of this amazing ministry! If you’re interested, please let me know so we can connect, get your contact info, and give you all the details.

Thank you everyone for your support and doing your part as The Church!
