For most, Thanksgiving is a time of enjoying plenty of food with our friends and families, but for some Thanksgiving is a reminder of just how little there is to go around. Now, Crozet Baptist Church is doing its part to give families in need a holiday to remember.
For the past 21 years, Crozet Baptist Church has taken part in the Share the Blessing Ministry, providing a full Thanksgiving meal for hundreds of families in need. Last year, Share the Blessing served more than 200 families and this year, they are looking at helping close to 325.
Volunteers are coming together all throughout western Albemarle County, but they need the community’s help to do it.
Thank you so much for contacting us about our Share the Blessing Ministry. At this time, all items on our grocery list are still in need, especially turkeys. Anything you can do to help would be much appreciated.
Our grocery list is as follows:
– 50oz can green beans
– Boxed stuffing
– Boxed potatoes
– Canned cranberries
– Can or jar gravy
– Turkey (any size frozen)
– Frozen pies (any flavor)
Food can be dropped off at Crozet Baptist until 5pm today or between 9am and noon tomorrow. We will be doing our final counts and shopping tomorrow afternoon.
Thank you so much for your interest in our mission and we ask that for your prayers for so many families in need. Blessings to you and yours for a wonderful Thanksgiving.
