Once again St. Matthews Area Ministries will be collecting and distributing Thanksgiving food baskets for families in the area and the Beargrass Youth Group is here to help! Due to COVID the project will be somewhat different and will happen earlier than in previous years.
If you’d like to assemble your own food basket please include the following in a re-useable grocery bag:
- Stuffing Mix
- 1 Can of Carrots
- 1 Can of Green Beans
- 1 Can of Cranberry Sauce
- 1 Can of Yams
- Turkey Gravy
- Corn Muffin Mix
- 1 Bag of Brown Sugar
- 1 Bag of Marshmallows
- 1 Box of Cake Mix
Also consider donating a $25 gift card to Kroger or to Wal-Mart. You may bring these items to church anytime between now and Oct 28th.
Alternately you can make a cash donation to the church and the Beargrass Youth will do your shopping for you! A full food basket and gift card should cost approximately $40 but a donation in any amount will be much appreciated. You can make these donations electronically through our normal methods or by sending a check to the church anytime between now and Oct 25th. Please mark these extra payments for “St. MAM Thanksgiving” and they will be allocated accordingly.
Feel free to bring your donations to the Bond Voyage or to Trunk or Treat events as well.
Any questions please contact Rev. Rob Shrader ([email protected]).
