The Board of Deacons have announced that November’s Meal a Month will go to The New Church of Joy in Waukegan. Executive Director, Tricia Reyes, is grateful for our support with Thanksgiving food boxes. This year approximately 300 boxes will be distributed. Each box needs the following items: 2 cans green beans; 2 cans corn; 1 stuffing mix; 1 bag of rice; 1 box of mac & cheese; 1 package of mashed potatoes; 1 can cranberry sauce; 1 can of chicken noodle soup; 1 can of chicken broth; 1 package of corn bread mix; cake mix; 1 can chocolate frosting; butter cookies. These items need to be returned to the church by Wednesday, November 16. Our mission committee also supports this effort with a generous gift to the Northern Illinois Food Bank so each box can be supplied with meat. What a wonderful way to say thank you to God for our bounty and to share it with our neighbors.
