Area churches in partnership with the Valley Interfaith Community Center

Ascension and Holy Trinity is once again joining other area churches in partnership with the Valley Interfaith Community Center in the annual Thanksgiving Basket Drive. This year the actual event will be on Saturday, November 17 at Friendship United Methodist Church staring at 9am.

You can participate in several ways:

  • Donations of $50 will create one basket. Checks for any amount can be made
    out to A&HT. Please memo the check Thanksgiving Basket Drive.
  • People will be packing the baskets at Friendship UMC starting at 9am.
  • At about 10:30 volunteers and cars will be needed to deliver the baskets to
    families.

Last year A&HT through our contributions were able to create 40 baskets for needy families. We hope to achieve at least this amount this year. In addition to the money, the meeting of families from our local communities to assist with the packing of the baskets in truly an enjoyable time. It is nice to see a community come and work together to help others. The delivering of the baskets to families is also a very positive experience and a good learning experience for children. Drivers are always needed.

Orange sign up cards are available in the church bulletin Sunday, October 21 and throughout the church.  If you are willing to volunteer, please fill one out and leave at the church office. Placing your email address is important so you can receive any updates.

Thank you for helping in this important ministry.
