THANKSGIVING BLESSING is a community-wide program that gives the neediest families in our neighborhood the dignity of celebrating Thanksgiving with a traditional turkey dinner with all the fixings. Last year, 7,477 families were served across Anchorage.
On Monday, November 19 from 3 pm to 8 pm the food will be distributed at six local centers across town. Our local distribution site is Crosspoint Church, in the Fred Meyer / Burlington shopping center on Dimond Blvd. Last year, over 1,240 families were served at this site alone!
JLP has been asked to help out two ways: cranberry sauce and volunteers:
- We were asked to provide 250 cans of cranberry sauce. If you’d like to contribute, please bring cans of cranberry relish to the church by Wednesday, November 14, so we can get them to the church on time.
- JLP was also invited to provide volunteers. If you know you’d like to volunteer, please sign up on the list in the Café. If you’re not sure, ask any of the JLP people who have volunteered in previous years!
