November is Food Baskets month for Social Ministry’s Thanksgiving community outreach. This year we’re focusing on approximately 12 to 15 families in need in an area elementary school as well as a new organization we’re partnering with: INSPIRITUS. They are the new Birmingham branch that works with Lutheran Social Services to WELCOME and PROVIDE necessary everyday services to a population of newly vetted legal immigrants/refugees from countries around the world. We will be providing more partnering opportunities for our congregation in the future but for now we are focusing on food for the newly arrived families. We will be collecting non-perishable food items for traditional Thanksgiving Feasts through Sunday, November 19th. See the Social Ministry bulletin board outside Pastor’s office for details.
NOTE: Please check the expiration date on donated items. A gift card will be included which the families can use to purchase perishable Thanksgiving items such as a turkey. As always, thank you for the outpouring of support you show for this annual project.
