Our 27th annual Feast of Plenty free Thanksgiving meal will be held here at Central Baptist Church one week from today. There are still many opportunities for you to be a part of Feast of Plenty this year. They are listed below:
Volunteer opportunities are still available. We are in most need of meal delivery drivers and clean up help from 2-4 p.m. Please call the church office to sign up (217-523-3639).
Donations of hats, gloves, socks, and scarves are still needed and will be appreciated. We have not yet received many and with the weather getting colder the demand for these items will be great. Drop off your donation in the Serve the World Center.
Desserts are still needed. Please bring your donated dessert to the church office by 5 p.m. next Wednesday.
Fundraiser Remember to come out and support the Feast of Plenty Fundraiser at Noodles and Company on November 19, 4-9 p.m. 10% of sales from the evening will go to our Feast of Plenty. If you donate 2 items (hats, gloves, socks, or scarves), Noodles and Co. will give you a coupon for a free bowl on another visit.
Financial SupportÂ It takes around $3,000 to make Feast of Plenty happen each year. With food costs on the rise this figure may be even higher this year. If you would like to help in this way, you can make your check payable to Central Baptist Church noting â€œFeast of Plentyâ€ in the memo line.
Finally, please remember to Pray for our volunteers, volunteer coordinators, and everyone with whom we come in contact with on Thanksgiving Day.
If you would like to volunteer in any way or have any questions, please email us.
