Our Youth Group is carrying on the proud NHPC tradition of assembling Thanksgiving Baskets for distribution to families in need this holiday season.  Whether you can contribute an entire “basket,” a few items from the list, or prefer to make a monetary contribution, all donations are welcome! Be sure to bring your donations to church by Sunday, November 22nd so that we can distribute them in time for Thanksgiving.  Items needed include:  Stuffing mix, boxed potatoes, gravy, canned vegetables, canned sweet potatoes, corn bread mix, cake/brownie mix, cake frosting, applesauce, canned cranberry sauce, canned soup.  Bring frozen turkeys and bread  no earlier than November 22nd, so we can store them safely.
