Thank you to all who have contributed money to purchase Thanksgiving Gift Cards for the WestSide CARES Thanksgiving Baskets! It is not too late to add your contribution to help provide Thanksgiving Dinners for our neighbors in need. Simply send your gift card / check to the Church (103 Pawnee Avenue, Manitou Springs CO 80829) marked “Thanksgiving Baskets.” Or use the church’s digital giving methods found on our website.

What does Thanksgiving mean to you? To me it means being grateful for all that I have and have been given – things like my home, my food, my family, my health, my friends, my church. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by all of this abundance. I also know that there are many people who don’t have this.

We have an opportunity to help some of those people receive a portion of our bounty. WestSide CARES is preparing 80 Thanksgiving baskets to be given to neighboring families. Since we are in the midst of COVID restrictions, it is deemed safer to gather food gift cards – not the actual food items. If you are able to help purchase items for these baskets, please send your financial contribution to the Church, marked Thanksgiving Baskets. We will purchase gift cards to be sent to WestSide CARES to help purchase food item for these Thanksgiving Baskets. We need to send the cards by the end of October.
