Serving the Food Bank on Sunday, Nov. 19th
Each Thanksgiving the Helpline Food Bank moves their entire operation down the street to the National Guard Armory. The Thanksgiving distribution of food will serve over 1,200 families on Monday and Tuesday, November 20th and 21st. In order to serve this large group of people the large supply of food and frozen turkeys will need to be moved in trucks to the Armory. They will need as many helping hands and trucks as possible to move the large amount of food and other needed items. Ekklesia is calling all helpers to gather at the food bank at 8:30am to begin loading trucks and then we will unload them over at the Armory. After this service opportunity we will then gather at the Parkwood Club for our Thanksgiving meal and worship.

Thanksgiving Food Bank Distribution
Monday & Tuesday- Nov. 20th & 21st
Ekklesia members will again be helping with the annual Helpline Food Bank food distribution before the Thanksgiving holiday. Each year over 1200 families receive food assistance from the food bank for their Thanksgiving meal. This actually serves over 4,000 people in need. We will need Ekklesia volunteers throughout the day on Monday and Tuesday next week to fill shopping carts with meals and take them out to the personal vehicles of the families.
