Holiday Programs


Thanksgiving Baskets

In keeping with the name of the event, we were filled with Thanksgiving at our recent Thanksgiving Baskets distribution. More than 500 families signed up to get all the makings of a traditional feast … and the whole event assured a beautiful holiday for our clients.

An event like this doesn’t happen without a HUGE amount of help! Please join us in thanking:

Barb Woehle and Sherry Barrett – committed co-chairs who inspire such “thanks” in us;

Our Volunteers – friends and neighbors who, literally, do all the heavy lifting and warm giving;

St. John United Church of Christ – our Thanksgiving Basket home, filled with service and care for our clients;

Our Donors – food drives big and small, friends who made sure every family got a beautiful turkey, happy people who shared additional healthy treats and kid-perfect greeting cards with each family, groups who made baking bags filled with food staples that warm up a kitchen, those who shared cash to enable us to give pies, vegetables and small gift cards – each of you contributed to the feast!

Thank you!


Holiday Family Adoption

Families, churches, businesses and others in the community receive the wish lists of our families in need. The Holiday Family Adoption program is a positive expression of sharing for the season.
