Sharing Our Blessings for
The Hedges Chapel Outreach Committee invites you to join us in sharing our blessings with children and families in need this Thanksgiving and Christmas. The families we will be helping have been identified by Starting Points from the Pleasant View Elementary School area in nearby Morgan County. The food will provide a nutritious meal as well as supplies to utilize the leftovers and stock the pantry a bit. We provide a set menu for each family so please donate ONLY the non-perishable items below.
CHRISTMAS FOOD BASKET ITEMS – DUE BY SUNDAY, DECEMBER 17 or sooner -- Drop off from 12 – 1 pm on Sunday, November 26, December 3, 10 or 17 or by other arrangement with Judy Snyder.
Scalloped/ Au gratin Potatoes (large box)
Vegetables: (cans) Corn, Diced Tomatoes (low sodium if available)
Mac & Cheese (family size)
Applesauce (large jar)
Cake Mix and Frosting
Drop off times will be each Sunday in the Fellowship Hall from 12 - 1 pm, November 26 until December 17. If necessary, you may make other arrangements through Judy Snyder at email@example.com.
If you would rather make a cash donation for fresh food items, please write “Outreach Food” in the memo section of your check and put it in the collection plate or send it to Hedges Chapel at 668 Mt. Lake Road, Hedgesville, WV 25427. If it would be easier, you may also give cash to any member of the committee. For Thanksgiving, cash donations will help offset the cost of turkeys and other fresh food such as sweet potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, apples, pumpkin pies, butter, and rolls which will be purchased by the committee. At Christmas, we will buy hams and other fresh items such as sweet potatoes, carrots, salad greens, tangerines, eggs, butter, and biscuits.
Information about the Christmas Angel gifts of clothing for the children of these families is available by contacting Kris O'Brien at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your role in making the holidays a little brighter for families in need!
