THANKSGIVING BASKETS

Posted by on Nov 7, 2013 in Announcements, Upcoming Events | Comments Off

Helping the community is something Midway UMC is known for and we have faith this year that we will be generous in showing those struggling during the holidays what a caring church we are. With your support we hope to distribute Thanksgiving baskets to families who could use assistance with their meal.

Empty baskets are available for pickup in the Narthex. All baskets are due back to the church by noon Sunday, November 24th. If you are unable to fill a basket but still wish to support this program, please make a donation to this worthwhile cause. Just put “Thanksgiving Baskets” at the bottom of a check and place it in the offering or bring it by the church office. Call Kim Rutherford at 770-792-1869 if you have any questions. If you know of a family who could use help this year please let Frank or Donna know. Thank you so much for your support!!

 A sign up sheet is available in the Narthex. There is a list provided in each basket of the items needed. All items are available locally. The cost per basket is approximately $75.00 including a $15.00 gift certificate for a turkey or ham.

(Kim shopped at Aldi’s to fill a basket last week and got everything except the $15 gift certificate for $46)
