Thanksgiving Baskets 2017

Help make Thanksgiving a little brighter for a needy neighbor.  New Hempstead Church has a long tradition of donating “Thanksgiving Baskets” to local families in need. Be sure to bring your food items to church on Sunday, November 19 so that we can distribute them before Thanksgiving.   You can also sponsor a basket, and we’ll do the shopping for you.  We’ll need volunteers on November 19 to shop and assemble the baskets.

Here’s the list:

  • Turkey
  • Stuffing mix
  • Boxed potatoes
  • Gravy
  • Canned vegetables (2-4 cans)
  • Canned sweet potatoes/yams
  • Corn bread mix
  • Cake/Brownie mix
  • Cake frosting
  • Applesauce
  • Canned cranberry sauce
  • Soup (2 cans)
  • Loaf of bread
