Asbury UMC will again be hosting the Thanksgiving and Holiday Programs sponsored by Tri-Valley Haven. Each year, TVH provides food at Thanksgiving and a Holiday Gift Event for homeless and low income families. It is a wonderful way to help those families that might be challenged to have a Thanksgiving Dinner or have gifts for their families at the holidays.
Our first task will be to help register families for these events at the Tri-Valley Haven Food Pantry, 418 Junction Avenue, Livermore on November 3rd and 5th. The second thing we have is the actual distribution of the food bags for Thanksgiving. This involves handing out bags of food to families who have preregistered to receive one. This will be at Asbury on Monday, November 23rd. And third, we will sort gifts in early December and staff the Holiday Gift Event at Asbury on Thursday, December 10th and Saturday, December 12th.
You will be working with other volunteers and TVH staff at our church. Stop by the Serve Others Table to see what specific shifts we need help staffing. or contact Steve Elliott at 925-362-8697 or [email protected].
