Service Sunday – Thanksgiving Basket Drop Off

Sunday, November 19, 2017

12:00pm - 2:00pm

Location:
Fiedler Atrium

Be a part of Wilkinson Center’s Annual Turkey Basket Drive and Distribution as volunteers collect and distribute turkey baskets to hundreds of families. This is an inspiring volunteer opportunity for FirstChurch to collect and distribute turkey baskets. On distribution day, volunteers will unload collected turkey baskets and distribute them to our Wilkinson Center families.  Wilkinson Center has a goal of distributing 800 Turkey baskets this Thanksgiving and First Church can be a part of helping to reach this goal. It is giving from one family to another family.

What is in a Turkey Basket?

  • Basket/Container for the food. Be festive and creative!!  Let the basket/Container that holds the food reflect your holiday traditions.  This is sharing your family with another family.
  • $20.00 (cash or check). Wilkinson Center will purchase gift check vouchers from Butterball. Gift checks do not expire, can be used towards a turkey, ham and other grocery food items to accommodate vegetarian recipients.
  • Canned vegetables: For example:  green beans, corn, green peas, cranberry etc.
  • Gravy (jar or mix)
  • Boxed stuffing/dressing mix and/or boxed potato mix
