Thank You!

Congregation Eucharist

Thank you to all who contributed toward our goal to provide Thanksgiving meals. The final tally was 432 baskets! We are grateful for your generosity and to all the helping hands that made the drive a success. A special thanks to the 20s&30s Group for taking the lead with such great enthusiasm and skill. Our gratitude goes to the several partner organizations who donated the turkeys. The December newsletter will provide additional highlights.
