Ministries: Outreach: Thanksgiving Food Drive for Cheyenne Elementary
I was hungry and you gave me food:
Each year, the E.C.W. and Outreach Committee co-sponsor a Thanksgiving Food Drive to provide 30 bags of food for families in need. In 2016, 15 bags were provided to Cheyenne Elementary School, 7 bags were provided to Country Meandows Elementray School, 4 bags were provided to Eve's Place, and 4 bags were provided to church families within St. Christopher's. Church members and friends shopped for and donated stuffing, mac & cheese, canned string beans, cranberry sauce, yams, mashed potatoes or rice, onions, baking mix, cake mix and frosting or muffin mix, a card made by the church's card-making ministry, and a grocery gift card to purchase a meat to finish out the meal. We put all of these Thanksgiving items into individual bags for each family and delivered them to Cheyenne School. We donated extra food received in the drive to the Valley View Food Bank.
