JOHN STREET BAPTIST CHURCH
Thanksgiving and Christmas Basket Ministry
The mission of the Thanksgiving and Christmas Basket Ministry is to make a positive impact in the lives of those who are in need at these special times of the year by providing nutritious meals to individuals and families.
We accomplish this through:
· Partnership with local businesses to help supply nutritious holiday meals for individuals and families in the Worcester community. Members of this ministry negotiate with various local businesses for reasonable prices to pay for the food items, collect, transport, and store the food items, and package meal baskets for needy individuals and families;
· Collecting non-perishable food items for distribution to our needy;
· Collecting monetary donations from church members to fund this effort.
· Partnership with Elm Park Community Elementary School to provide food assistance to families of children who attend the school.
In the past 8 years, the church, through this ministry, has provided meals to over 700 individuals and families in the Worcester community during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.
If you would like contribute to this worthwhile ministry contact the coordinator, Sister Sherriel D. Lewis or by sending monetary (tax deductible) donation to the church earmarked for this purpose.
