Last month was all about scarecrows and the Addams Family. This month, we give thanks for the many blessings we received over the last year. Unfortunately, some people may not have been as blessed as you. To help them through this holiday season, please add a few items to your grocery shopping list and bring them to the Cranford Thanksgiving Food Drive 2021.
What: Cranford Thanksgiving Food Drive 2021
Where: Cranford United Methodist Church (201 Lincoln Ave E)
When: Saturday, November 13th, 10 am to 1 pm
Cranford Thanksgiving Food Drive 2021
Giving to others not only helps them but it makes you feel good, too. Consider donating food to Cranford UMC’s food drive this Saturday, November 13th. Just bag up the items you want to donate. Then, place them in the trunk of your car or bed of your truck. After that, drive to the church parking between 10 am and 1 pm. Volunteers will then take the items out of your vehicle without you ever having to physically interact with them. All donations received go directly to local organizations like St. Joseph’s Social Services and Cranford Family Care.
Can’t make it to the donation site on Saturday? Drop them off in the bins located just outside the church near the Little Free Pantry. The Little Free Pantry located in the church’s parking lot accepts donations 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. People experience food insecurity year-round, not just during the holidays. So, if you can give a little something every so often, it helps.
Shelf-stable non-perishable food items requested for donation include:
- Cranberry sauce
- Fried onion packets
- Green beans
- Mashed potatoes
- Pie filling
- Potatoes (bagged)
- Salad dressing
- Seasonings (salt, pepper, spices)
- Sweet potatoes (bagged)
After you drop off your food for the food drive, head over to First Presbyterian on Springfield. Get started on your Christmas shopping or find interesting decor for your Thanksgiving table this year at their craft Fair from 9 am to 4 pm. Thanksgiving arrives in less than two weeks. Then, just 29 days of shopping left until Christmas after that. You don’t want to dally or you may miss out on great gifts to give.
