As you celebrate Thanksgiving, our annual national celebration of Food and Football, and as you remember the things for which you are Thankful, please know how much we are thankful for this community of folks in Marion County who support this ministry through their generosity of time, talent and treasure, and we are thankful for our tireless Volunteers who make this ministry happen.
Happy Thanksgiving y’all!
The Tuesday before Thanksgiving has always been the busiest day of the year for our food bank. For example in 2014, we had 120 of our neighbors come in for food and 171 boxes were given to neighbors. If that wasn’t busy enough we enrolled 8 new neighbor families.
The volunteers filling boxes did a great job but they were exhausted trying to keep up with the demand.
This year we want to hold a BOX FILLING PIZZA PARTY on the Monday before Thanksgiving with the goal of having 200 boxes filled awaiting distribution.
On Monday, November 23 at 10am we will need volunteers to help fill these boxes. As an incentive, we will provide pizzas for lunch.
if you can help, please let Gary or Ginger (228-9004) by clicking the link below:
