NOVEMBER MISSIONS FEATURED PROJECT
NOVEMBER MISSIONS PROJECT – SEQUATCHIE COUNTY FOOD BANK
This YEAR the Food Bank will work with the 1st Baptist Church of Dunlap to provide a Thanksgiving meal to all needy residents at the National Guard Armory on Thanksgiving Day. They will not be giving our turkeys this year. They will be giving money to 1st Baptist to help cover the cost of this catered dinner. Therefore we are asking for your help with monetary donations to the Food Bank to help with this project.
You can give your donation to Gloria Cannon or Jane Indyk. The Food Bank can always use canned goods, but the Food Bank is able to purchase items at a greatly reduced price ffom the Chattanooga Food Bank, so monetary donations stretch their buying power.
At our Food Bank, all familiels are certified each year based on their income. They must show proof of all the income (paystubs, food stamp award, Social Securty or Disability Benefits, prpoof of Families First or proof of Public Housing.) The families we serve have a desperate need throughout the year and any help you can give is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your help in making this an enjoyable Thanksgiving Meal for our neighbors in need.
