Thanksgiving Basket Collection 2021

The Board of Deacons’ campaign in November focuses on donations suitable for Thanksgiving Feasts as part of our continuing efforts against Hunger in Howard County. The Deacons are asking for your help to provide 20 Thanksgiving Food Baskets to client families of Bridges to Housing Stability and 5 baskets to church community families. Our church will also provide Giant food cards for 25 families from Luminus.
