Thanksgiving is coming soon and Sunrise Christian Food Ministry is in need of our help. They need turkeys, whole chickens, hams, pies and canned food to make Thanksgiving meals for their clients. The canned food can be brought to Church any time. The perishable foods can be brought to the kitchen in the Parish Hall on November 18th. You may also deliver the items to the food closet on November 19th, 20th or 21st between 11:00 am and 2:30 pm. The address is 5901 San Juan Ave.
The food closet is behind Advent Lutheran Church. We will also be accepting monetary gifts and we can provide receipts for tax purposes.
Last year we were able to make Thanksgiving a little happier for over four hundred family units. This year the need is even greater, as each month the number of families we help grows larger.
If you have any questions you can contact the church office at 916-961-4252.
May you be blessed in your giving and caring for your neighbors.
