Thanksgiving, a time to spend with family and football all the while eating a wonderful home-cooked meal. Well considering that not all families will be able to be together and the price of turkey and other meats are out of hand. Shoot, have you seen the price of gas! We decided it was time…
It’s time to get the band back together.
We will meet THIS SATURDAY 11/20 at 1pm to pack boxes to distribute on Wednesday 11/24 at 3PM, the day before Thanksgiving.
We will also be accepting donations on Saturday. We are looking to make 60-100 boxes for our neighbors. So please if you have some time to volunteer on either Saturday or Wednesday (why not both days?) stop by.
We plan on starting at 1PM on Saturday and I am thinking that this should take no longer than an hour to pack the boxes. Wednesday, our distribution day, we plan on setting up at 2PM on at the Morgan Park Presbyterian Church located at 11052 S Longwood Dr. in Morgan Park. If you cannot be there for the setup, we can really use the help closing up shop too. It would be great if you can make it out and join us.
Wishing you the very best,
