Event description

Description

We will purchase, sort, package, and ship 40,000 meals to the Bahamas for those still dealing with the effects of Hurricane Dorian.

Due to the high demand of interest, we can only accommodate 300 volunteers. The evening will be separated into 2 different shifts. Each shift will be available for 150 people and will package 20,000 meals. This project is open to children as young as 5. We will have certified childcare for children younger than 5 if you reserve a spot.

  • SHIFT 1 will be from 5:30 to 7:00p. Volunteers for this shift will need to be onsite at 5:15p.
  • SHIFT 2 will be from 7:00 to 8:30p. Volunteers for this shift will need to be onsite at 6:45p.

WE ARE FOR feeding the hungry. This is our 5th annual Thanksgiving Meal Packing event. Through the first 4 years, we have packed 180,000 meals for Haiti and Puerto Rico. This year we will hit 220,000 total meals packed. Come be a part of something big. There is no better way to celebrate Thanksgiving.

***While the packing event FREE to participate, we still need to raise funds to pay for the food. Each meal costs $0.30. The total cost for the 40,000 is $12,000. We need your help to purchase and pack. If you are able and would like to donate to the project, please send a check to FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH with a note that designates the funds to "Meal Packing". Or you can give online at WelcomeTo.FAITH
