Annettes Thanksgiving & Christmas Food Drives

"Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life.  Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty'."
John 6:35

The Annettes group of St. Stephen collects donations and food throughout the year for our annual Thanksgiving and Christmas Food Baskets.  We partner with Baxter Community Center to deliver food baskets to approximately 40 families at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Food items needed include: canned fruit and vegetables, peanut butter, jelly, meals in a can or box, pasta, cereal (hot or cold), beans, canned meat or tuna, pancake mix, syrup, hot chocolate mix, shampoo, toothpaste, soap, tissue, toilet paper, and paper towels - just to name a few.  Items can be dropped off in the back of the church.

Monetary donations are used for gift certificates for meat or other entrée, fresh fruit, battery for a smoke alarm, etc.  Place your donation in the Sunday collection.

Also needed are drivers to deliver the food baskets.  This will be done the weekends before Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Questions? Call Steve or Lora Bennett at 616-550-2394 or .

Thank you to the Parish of St. Stephen as they once again use their time, talent, and treasure to provide for those in need.

PLEASE DO NOTE PLACE PERISHABLE OR HOME-MADE FOOD ITEMS AS THIS COULD CREATE A LIABILITY FOR THEM OR US.
