mealsFunding for Community Thanksgiving Meals
An Initiative of the the American Red Cross


We've just learned that the American Red Cross is offering their support to our congregations willing to provide a Thanksgiving meal to the our communities  impacted by Hurricane Sandy throughout the week of November 18-25, 2012. If your congregation is planning or would like to host a Thanksgiving meal, the American Red Cross would like to offer its support in making this an opportunity for individuals and families to join together in the wake of this historic disaster. They are prepared to offer financial support to reimburse for direct food costs and associated paper goods (cups, napkins, etc) and serving needs (utensils, etc).  The American Red Cross has announced that they will reimburse the cost of the meal at an amount not to exceed $20/person for a maximum of 250 people. If your event is larger than 250 people and/or if you have the need for additional support please contact Robin Graham at
