Help and potatoes needed as Thanksgiving Baskets is approaching fast!
On Saturday, Nov. 23, St. Paul's will help make Thanksgiving Day better for more than a thousand families by distributing Thanksgiving baskets as part of the ecumenical effort Thanksgiving Baskets Downtown. In the days leading up to that, we have plenty of opportunities to sort, shift, move and deliver. Please go to 
https://www.thanksgivingbasketscanton.org/  to sign up. If you'd like to contribute financially, please make your check out to Thanksgiving Baskets Downtown. And if you have some mashed potatoes to contribute to the effort, we've set up a box in the Narthex for your contributions.  Thanks, as always, for your support of an outreach that makes an important difference for some 1,200 of our neighbors throughout Stark County.

Mark your calendar for Sunday, November 24th – Required training for Acolytes. More information will follow.
