Cascade UMC will Provide 300+ Families with a Week's worth of Food at Thanksgiving

Atlanta, GA--  Cascade United Methodist Church’s New Advent Choir continues a needed tradition in the Cascade Community—distributing groceries for Thanksgiving dinner and a week’s worth of additional groceries to Atlanta residents.  This year’s Thanksgiving Food Basket Project on Monday, November 22, 2010, will seek to service more than 300 families— one hundred more than last year.  Continuing also is the method of the project.   The church’s fellowship hall turns into a grocery store:  turkeys on one isle; greens and bread on another; and dry food goods nearby.   Choir and church members “shop” for the food, which is then divided, placed into boxes, and delivered to waiting recipients who are pre-selected from community organizations and area schools within the Cascade corridor. 

The project is funded by the generosity of Cascade members and the community, who donate in $100 increments or more/less.  Angel Food Ministries and Wal-Mart are partnering with New Advent Choir for the groceries.  The day starts at 6 a.m. for the volunteers and continues until the last of the recipients is serviced.  The Cascade Clothes Closet will be opened and pastoral counseling is available in the Joseph Lowery Chapel for recipients while they are waiting to be serviced.
