Each fall, Capitol Hill Group Ministry proudly hosts a Thanks-GIVING Food Basket Drive to provide Thanksgiving feasts with all the trimmings to families in Ward 6 and beyond.
This year CHGM provided 441 Thanksgiving bags, serving 1,764 individuals! A huge thanks to our 2015 partners and volunteers who made it possible for us to provide so many families with special holiday meals!
12th Annual Thanksgiving Interfaith Service
Capitol Hill United Methodist Church hosted CHGM's 12th Annual Thanksgiving Interfaith Service on Sunday, November 22, 2015. Members of diverse faith communities joined us for an uplifting and inspiring event.
One of the most special parts of the service for CHGM was being able to honor volunteers and collaborators who support our work and serve our community in remarkable ways. We presented our Premier Partner award to Mothers on the Hill for their commitment
to a wide range of CHGM projects over many years. Korrin Bishop accepted our Champion Award for her exceptional dedication as a HART member and youth mentor. Lastly, Rob Farley was recognized with the Ruth Rappaport Wisdom Award for founding and leading the Our Daily Bread breakfast program, which provides food, fellowship, and support to dozens of our homeless neighbors every day.
It was a special afternoon and we are so grateful for everyone who came together to celebrate Thanksgiving and all those who make Capitol Hill such a wonderful community!
