Huntsville Thanksgiving Community Needs
Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. It's a time to be thankful and remember all we have been blessed with. After reading this inspiring article on generosity from National Christian Foundation, we wanted to share some ideas. Many in our community have needs that can easily be met. Let's be generous this Thanksgiving and give back to the community we love!
The CARE Center’s Food Pantry is a volunteer-led ministry that provides our neighbors a 3-day emergency food supply in food crises. Donations are welcome! Some suggestions are included on the Amazon wish list. Also, feel free to have items shipped directly to their business office at 5410 Main Drive in New Hope.
The Harris Home for Children is more than just a foster home; it is a private, non-profit agency providing full-time foster care services and crisis support for neglected adolescent children in our community, and around the state of Alabama. Harris Home for Children is the only emergency crisis service in the state of Alabama so when children unexpectedly find themselves without a safe space to sleep, or wondering where their next meal will come from, Harris Home for Children is the only place to turn.
** Current needs are twin bedding sets and towels. Reach out to Misty Anderson for other needs- [email protected]
This is the last week to prepare a shoebox. Drop off locations are spread out in the Huntsville/Madison area. This is a great service opportunity for young kids as well as more mature teens and adults.
In 2002, the Lincoln community, a 1.5-mile area just minutes from downtown Huntsville, AL, was riddled with crime and poverty. Parents were frustrated and exhausted from living in unsafe conditions and facing overwhelming obstacles as they tried to provide for their families. Despair and hopelessness set in.One man felt compelled to enter the darkness and bring the light of Christ. Thousands of others followed, and Lincoln Village Ministry began. Lincoln’s mission is to help people experience restoration and redemption through a transforming relationship with Christ. Volunteer needs are ongoing and always changing.
Also- please consider providing a scholarship to a student for FREE. For more info on how to do this through the Alabama Accountability Act, visit www.lincolnvillage.org/scholarships.
