The Community Congregational Church always helps Westside CARES supply Thanksgiving Baskets for 80 families. Our contribution this year is for carrots. Arlene Penman, our lay representative to Westside Cares, suggests that donating money for the carrots would allow her to do the shopping and assure the vegetables are all fresh. The deadline for delivering the carrots is November 15, so you can donate any time between now and November 12.
We are also asking the congregation to donate five hams and five turkeys. Between now and November 12, if you see a good sale on hams or turkeys please help our neighbors in need by purchasing a ham or turkey for a food basket.
Boy Scout Troop187 decorates the boxes (baskets), contributes the packages of gravy, and assembles all the baskets.
Thanks to all who support our food pantry and the Thanksgiving baskets.
