Food Drive & Ride-By Party for December Meeting
Tuesday, December 1, noon to 1 p.m.
Gazebo at Mount Wesley Conference Center
610 Methodist Encampment Road, Kerrville
As COVID-19 cases rise in Kerrville and we are all urged to avoid large gatherings, Hill Country Chapter of Texas Democratic Women invites all members to be part of our December Food Drive for Light on the Hill Ministries at Mount. Wesley. We will be keeping everyone safe, with masks and outdoor distancing, while helping our community. We hope to gather a lot of food between noon and 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
We all miss dressing up, so leave that lounge wear at home. Members are encouraged to dress for a holiday party and wear holiday-themed face coverings. We will be taking pictures and there will be a prize for the most festive mask. Ride by and drop off your donation, or bring a chair and stay a minute to socialize at a distance after delivering food.. Members can also stay in cars in the parking lot to greet Democratic friends we have missed so much since March.
Please come to the Gazebo in the parking lot at Mount. Wesley, on Methodist Encampment Road in Kerrville. Food collection will begin at noon and we plan to move the loaded wagons to Mustard Seed by 1:00 p.m.
Light on the Hill/Mustard Seed Ministries is the food ministry of First United Methodist Church in Kerrville. Nonperishable food like rice, beans, canned fruit and vegetables are welcome, along with holiday foods like stuffing mix and sweets. Monetary contributions are also welcom, along with plastic grocery sacks. Mustard Seed conducts one large food distribution for the San Antonio Food Bank every month, and also distributes food each Monday starting at 10 a.m.
Please start planning now as you shop for groceries so that we can make a big donation to make the holidays a time of abundant food for our neighbors.
