For the last 40 years, Chamblee UMC has sponsored a food drive that provides families in our community with a Thanksgiving Food Basket including fruit, vegetables, and a wide variety of canned and dried food items. These families are identified with the assistance of our local school counselors and social workers. Our goal this year is to help 200 families in need within our schools and surrounding community!
Ways to Help
Volunteers are needed for every phase of the Thanksgiving Food Drive. From collections and sorting, to to translation assistance to box distribution. Big or small, there’s an opportunity for all to serve. Sign up here.
