We are excited for the 2020 Thanksgiving Meal Drive! While we’ve had to make a few adjustments, but our goal remains the same which is to reach those within our local community by providing a thanksgiving meal for their family.
We will safely place items in the trunk of each family who signs up with a bag of items for a thanksgiving meal on November 22nd. Kits will include a $10 Giftcard towards a turkey.
How can you help?
There’s nothing more rewarding than blessing others! One way to get involved is to donate food. We will be collecting food donations and $10 gift cards through November 15. Donations can be dropped off at Urban Poiema Church Sundays 9 AM until noon on Thursdays 2:30 PM until 5 PM.
You can also give to the outreach fund here: https://www.urbanpoiema.com/give.html
