Thanksgiving Basket Party Donations needed

Posted by Shana Adkisson on

On November 19 at 6:00 p.m. the Family Life Center will be filled with games and fellowship for our annual Thanksgiving Basket Party.

This will be the seventh year that First Baptist has provided Thanksgiving baskets to the community.

"We provide a free family meal, time in our gym and game room and a basket of food to take home for Thanksgiving for 50 families with children under 18," Angela Atkins, Minister of Community Ministries said. "We need volunteers to help serve the meal, help guests gather food, and entertain the children."

Donations are also needed for the baskets. This year we are asking for canned sweet potatoes, instant scalloped potatoes, cake mix, chicken broth, instant mashed potatoes, frosting, Stove Top stuffing mix, canned pie filling, boxed pie crust mix, canned green beans and corn, and whole berry cranberry sauce.

"Financial donations also are being accepted to offset the meat and meal costs," Angela said.

Please have food items to the church office by Sunday, November 11.
