Thanksgiving Family Meal

Oct 06, 2021
And he would answer and say to them, “The man who has two tunics is to share with him who has none; and he who has food is to do likewise.” Luke 3:11 (NASB)

The holidays can be a stressful time of the year. This year, the coronavirus pandemic has left millions of families without a stable source of income. We are partnering with Arapahoe DHS to provide 200 Thanksgiving meals for families who are victims of abuse and neglect, foster care children and support families. Donating items for a Thanksgiving Family Meal is a great way to help BRAVE Church families and those in need in our community this Thanksgiving. 

You are invited to provide a complete Thanksgiving meal for a family in need. To get started, download the shopping list, obtain all the non-perishable food items for a family of five, and bring the items to church in a box or sturdy bag on any of the collection Sundays:

  • October 17
  • October 24
  • October 31, or
  • November 2, First Tuesday

Please do not include any PERISHABLE items (e.g., pies, cakes, cookies, fruit, vegetables, etc.)

As an alternative to contributing an entire Thanksgiving meal, a donation of any of the non-perishable food items on the list and/or a $20 gift card to King Soopers or Safeway to purchase a turkey can be dropped off at church on any of the collection Sundays.

If you know a family who is concerned about having enough food for Thanksgiving, please take a moment to:

  • Submit a request online for delivery of a complete Thanksgiving meal to the family, or
  • Submit a request in writing by downloading this form and returning it on any of the collection Sundays, or
  • Let one of our leaders, staff, or volunteers know

All meals will be delivered on Saturday, November 13, 10am - 2pm.

There are several opportunities to help with meal collection, meal assembly and meal delivery. If you would like to volunteer to help, use the button below to submit the volunteer form or let one of our leaders, staff, or volunteers know.
