Auburn United Methodist Church Gives Out 500 Thanksgiving Dinners

If there is one place where the Church should be involved and actively participating is helping those who need help.  I had a chance to visit the operation area of the Auburn United Methodist Church food bank on Thursday and they were preparing to give away 500 turkey dinners, 800 bags of fresh corn, milk, eggs, potatoes, and everything else you see in the boxes in the photos below.

I snapped this one shot with my phone on my way out, it was really neat to see this many meals lined up, but also a reminder of how many people were going to be here on Friday to pick up these boxes.  If you ever want to help out AUMC does this every Friday, I am sure they would love to have help boxing things up even when it is not Thanksgiving.

  1. That is awesome! And so true. My church has been doing a “We Give” program this Fall with all sorts of things to help those in need in both our community and other countries around the world. It is the first year we are doing it, and I really hope it becomes an annual thing! Our most recent activity was collecting “Soles for Souls” and have collected TONS of new shoes for people! Yay!

    Also, thanks for the comment on my blog! I love having new readers…hope you come back!

  2. Scott, you took this with your phone?? I should just throw my camera away now. Great clarity and color. I’m always inspired when I come to your blog, not only for the pictures but the context as well…thanks for sharing your work and being such an inspiration. BTW – I also love the Friday Feet…that is awesome!
