Help us Tally our Thanksgiving Outreach!
Thanksgiving Food Baskets – Thanksgiving Day Meals – Home-bound Deliveries – Congregate Feeding
It is that time of year again, the season of harvest and Thanksgiving. Many of our local churches are already in the midst of preparing for our annual Thanksgiving Dinner. For many it is our largest outreach feeding program of the year.
This year we would like to collectively tally our Thanksgiving outreach by sharing the combined effort of our various churches. We would like to share this year’s outreach as a national church project. This will be the first outreach ministry featured on our new website, which will be launched in the upcoming days.
We know that each church may have a different Thanksgiving outreach, but it all contributes to our National Thanksgiving Ministry. So whether your church provides meals, or baskets, or volunteer hours or donations to other local charities, we want your numbers to count.
This is what we need from you:
- Information on your outreach
- Estimate of volunteer hours
- Number of volunteers preparing/serving
- Number of individuals served
- Pictures of your outreach
- Video clips of your outreach
We have listed a few questions that will help you easily provide the desired information. We ask that you or a representative respond answering the questions that apply. While we are transitioning, please respond using the email email@example.com, and attach any video clips and pictures.
How many meals did you serve?
How many Thanksgiving baskets did you provide?
What date or month did you start preparation/planning for Thanksgiving?
If you prepared a meal, what date or day did you start cooking?
How many volunteers did you have (including your own members)?
How many turkeys were purchased or donated?
How many hours went into your preparation and serving (estimates acceptable)?
How many hours did your church work on Thanksgiving Day?
If your members volunteered at other charities, how many hours were worked?
If your members donated goods to other charities, what was the dollar amount donated?
Thank you for helping us out! We look forward to seeing and sharing the total picture of our National Thanksgiving Outreach Ministry.
