Thanksgiving is a day of giving thanks to God, enjoying food and above all, fellowship with family. This is the day to reach out to those families who need our love and support to celebrate the holiday with a warm and enjoyable meal.
As a community, we would like to reach out to 150 families this year. You can make a difference for sponsoring a family with a $35 donation (made payable to Assumption Philoptochos) or bring your non-perishable food items and frozen turkeys no later than Sunday, November 18, 2018. Representatives from Food for Child will meet with our Sunday School children and pick up our donations for distribution to the families.
On behalf of those who are receiving your action of kindness, thank you!
A donation of $35 and/or items needed:
Canned vegetables, canned fruit, gravy, stuffing/dressing, cranberry sauce, bag of potatoes, dinner rolls, cake and frosting mix, peanut butter, bread, cereal, oatmeal, granola bars, canned soup, dry pasta, uncooked rise/beans and frozen turkeys. Grocery gift cards (Northgate, Superior, Ralphs, Food4Less). Please do not donate expired items.
Mail checks to: Assumption Greek Orthodox Church, 5761 E Colorado St, Long Beach, CA 90814. Attention: Philoptochos.
