Through the Years
In 2009, God planted our mission of providing an entire Thanksgiving meal for 500 families for Thanksgiving. Through over 500 volunteers and trust in God, we were able to provide the food necessary, money for the turkeys and $5 for each recipient!
In 2010, God proved himself worthy of all of our praise once again! Through the tireless effort of our volunteers, we were able to raise the food and funds necessary for another 500 meals at Thanksgiving.
In 2011, we upped the challenge to include TWO of every side item in the box. That’s 1,000 items on top of the 500 Turkeys!
In 2012, the bar was raised again by God’s provision of extra boxes and collections that helped us feed nearly 600 families.
In 2013, our goal was to feed 700+ Northern Indiana families in need. That goal was met with the grace and support of our community.
2014, we set the goal & the community made it possible to feed 912 total families!
2015, God provided more than we could have imagined or hoped for. With generous donors, a larger location and even more volunteers, we graciously served 1,100 families.
2016 was all God! We set a goal and He knocked it out of the park with 1,300 families served! What a blessing to be able to help so many. What concern that the need is so great. Join us in prayer for those in need and that we will do what we can to help.
2017 promises to glorify God by helping at least 1,300 families in our community. We would be honored to have you join us in making these blessings happen.
The following items will be included in every box: turkey, stuffing, yams, mash potatoes, gravy, corn, carrots, green beans, Jell-O, Brownie Mix, Cornbread, Cranberries.
Additional items that may be provided if the funds are available: Zip Lock Baggies, roasting pan, fresh rolls, margarine, eggs, pie, and toilet paper.
