Thanksgiving Basket Project

Please bring the following groceries to FPC red grocery carts located outside the Great Hall November 10-24. The last day to turn in groceries is November 24. Any donations after that date will go to Community Crossroads food pantry.


The Thanksgiving Basket Project is a ministry of one of our partners, South Central Alliance of Churches. Alliance member churches supply the groceries; South Central Alliance arranges the purchases of turkeys to accompany the bags; neighbors sign up at the Tuesday pantry at South Central Alliance of Churches (2101 Hemphill) from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in October with a $5 donation.  Please follow the package sizes noted on the enclosed shopping list and include only those items in the bags.  (Multiple bags are provided to larger families.)


In addition, we need volunteers on Monday, November 25 to transport the bags brought to FPC to South Central Alliance of Churches between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Please contact Robyn Michalove ( ) if you can help with this. Also, we welcome volunteers to help with the distribution of the turkeys and food bags at Southside Church of Christ on Tuesday, November 26 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
