Thanksgiving Food Donations!

Food Donations for Children's Community Programs of CT on Sundays (11/14 & 11/21)!

As we announced last Sunday, we will be collecting non-perishable food items (& meats) for the Children's Community Programs of CT to create Thanksgiving Baskets for families in need in New Haven!

Donations we will be collecting include: canned goods, boxes of stuffing, mixes and other things that will not spoil.

We will also be collecting TURKEYS (or chickens, or ham!) Donations of these meats are great, because the number of turkeys donated is really the limiting factor for how many families can be served.

We will have a box at the church during the next two Sunday Gatherings (11/14 & 11/21), so please remember to bring your donations then to help families in need in New Haven!

If you can't bring your donations on those Sundays, please feel free to contact Jillian to arrange a time to drop of your donation to her.

In addition: I'm sure many of you had received an email (through our ECV Community List) about food donations & volunteer help for IRIS for their Thanksgiving Celebration for Refugees on 11/20, so if you have any questions about that, please contact Margaret at

These opportunities are a great and easy way to help our neighbors in New Haven during this Thanksgiving season!
