Asbury UMC will be hosting the Thanksgiving and Holiday Gift 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 1st, 3rd and 10th.
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 21st.
And third, we will sort gifts December 12th-16th and staff the Holiday Gift Event at Asbury on Thursday, December 15th and Saturday, December 17th.
You will be working with other volunteers and TVH staff at our church. Stop by the Serve Others Table after worship to see what specific shifts we need help staffing.
