Mission and Outreach Thanksgiving Offering

“Speak out for those who cannot speak, for the rights of all the destitute. Defend the rights of the poor and needy.”  -Proverbs 31: 8-9

Dear members and friends,
It has been a long tradition in our church to offer our members and friends the opportunity to make a special contribution during the Thanksgiving season.

The truck from Haven from Hunger will be outside the Meeting House on Sunday, November 18th accepting food donations. Also the Executive Director, Corey Jackson, of the parent organization, Citizens Inn, will be present in our worship service.

If you are not able to participate with a food donation, we have designated Haven from Hunger to receive our Thanksgiving offering, and you can contribute using the special envelopes in the pew backs.
Haven from Hunger’s food pantry provides over 1,800 households with fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, dairy, and canned goods. Last year, they distributed enough food from their Peabody location for close to 600,000 meals.

More information about Citizens Inn and Haven from Hunger can be found at this link.

Our church has long been a supporter of Haven from Hunger. Please join the Board of Mission and Outreach in filling the pantry to overflowing for the upcoming holiday season.
