Our 24th annual Operation Turkey will come this fall at Saxe Gotha! Our church organizes this community-wide event that prepares and delivers approximately 2,000 Thanksgiving meals to those in need in our community.
Each year we partner with local agencies to secure the names of individuals in need. Our volunteers then prepare and deliver meals to these individuals. It's a true blessing to those who receive the meals, as well as to those who volunteer to serve in this ministry.
Although the main work takes place on the Wednesday prior to and Thanksgiving Day, our effort starts with food and monetary donations. On the days preceding and day of Thanksgiving, the following are ways that individuals can serve in the local ministry:
Regarding this most recent year's efforts, we served thousands of meals to individuals in need! We also donated leftover food to local charities, which continued to help so many people.
Thanks in advance for your time and prayers towards Operation Turkey!
