Thanksgiving Boxes

I had the pleasure of helping pack our thanksgiving boxes for a bit. (My box is on the left side in the back. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ) I was blown away by everyone's generosity. The Sisterhood of Grace came together to pack the boxes and make it a fun evening out as well.

Through our church's generosity, we collected around 600 items, with a value of around $1,500. These items filled 13 boxes, and 2 additional snack boxes for the school to keep on hand.

Each box was filled with the following items:
1. Cornbread Mix
2. Stuffing  & Gravy
3. Instant Potatoes
4. Applesauce
5. Canned Fruit
6. Macaroni and Cheese
7. Peanut Butter Snack Crackers
8. Peanut Butter
9. Cereal
10. Canned Tuna or Chicken
11. Granola bars or Pop Tarts
12. Jello or pudding
13. Soup with meat
14. Pasta and Canned Pasta  Sauce
15. Canned Cranberry Sauce
16. Cake or Brownie Mix
17. Rice or Rice Mixes
18. Nonfat dry milk
19. Cooking Oil
20. Chicken Broth
21. Green Beans
A $25 Gift Card to buy a Turkey, or something fresh
Mike Collins, our Missions lead, took most of the boxes to Green Cove Springs Junior High School. You see above a picture of him delivering them to the guidance counselor, who will ensure they get to the students who need them.
I also had the pleasure of delivering 2 boxes to bless families within our congregation. I was so blessed to be able to physically carry an expression of your love to others. I can tell you that both families were very blessed by this act of kindness.

Thank you for serving others in this way!
