This year’s goal is to fill 55 baskets for local families in need, including some Angel Fund Clients who are burdened with cancer treatment expenses.
If you have not yet contributed non-perishable items, any of the following items are needed:
- Canned vegetables
- Peanut Butter and Jellies
- Canned meats (tuna, Spam, Vienna sausages)
- Dried stuffing/dressing
- Potato mixes
- Mac & cheese
- Spaghetti noodles and sauce
- Cereal, oatmeal, breakfast bars
- Rice, and dried beans
[Please check expiration date on all items]
New This Year…Sponsoring a Basket and Recipes
The estimated cost of a thanksgiving basket is $70. If you would like to sponsor an entire basket please contribute this amount at the church office. Even if you can’t sponsor a basket, financial donations of all sizes, even as little as $5 or $10 , are needed to purchase missing items.
Also, we would like to include in this year’s baskets simple recipes using mainly items from the basket. If you have a favorite simple recipe, please drop it by the church office or email it prior to Nov. 12th.
Important Thanksgiving Basket Dates
November 12: Thanks for Giving Spaghetti Luncheon following worship and FPC youth Group Annual Grocery Shopping Challenge.

Again, thank you for your continued love and support! These thanksgiving baskets are a tangible expression of God’s love to members of our community and Angel Fund Foundation Clients. Please contribute what you can and we are happy to do your shopping for you if needed. This year’s coordinators for the Thanksgiving Basket Project are Susan Morehead and Stephanie Jackson. Please call one of them if you have a question.
Love, The Diaconate and Youth of FPC
