The Last Turkey Has Left the Building
As many of you know, this church coordinates a “Thanksgiving Basket” drive in an attempt to ensure local people in need have some help at this holiday time.
Some people receive “baskets” with turkeys and other supplemental items.
Some people receive “gift cards” which can be redeemed at Save-A-Lot.
Contributors to the overall effort this year included The First Baptist Church, Emmanuel Episcopal Church, St. Bart’s Catholic Church and St. Paul’s Catholic Church, all in Norwich. Teachers from the Norwich City Schools also made contributions.
The total served among all those contributors was 444 families.
The United Church of Christ coordinated this effort among all these groups.
The United Church of Christ also distributed 235 baskets prepared here at the church and/or delivered to the church to be distributed here.
It needs to be noted that Broad Street United Methodist church and the Catholic Churches will be joined in the effort to supply Christmas baskets.
TOTAL SERVED: 444
SERVED AT UCC: 235
