Thanksgiving Boxes

Ed MellNewsLeave a Comment

Immanuel is excited about sharing boxes filled with food items for Thanksgiving with families in need in our community – and we need your help.  We’ll also be working with our partners in ministry, such as the Memphis Union Mission, Neighborhood Christian Centers, and Tanglewood Apartments, to ensure these families are reached with the message of Jesus in conjunction with this demonstration of His love and compassion.

It would be great if groups, as well as individuals, could sponsor a complete or partial Thanksgiving box by providing the items needed below.  Your donated items can be left in bags, boxes, etc. in the church lounge by no later than Thursday, November 17.  We will ensure the food items are packaged in complete boxes on Saturday, November 19.  The families will pick up their boxes on Sunday, November 20 from 3:00-5:00 PM in the church lobby.  The items needed for each box include: 1 graham cracker pie crust, 1 can fruit pie filling, 1 box instant mashed potatoes, 1 box of stuffing mix, 1 large can of yams, 1 large can of green beans (or 2 reg. cans), 1 large can of corn (or 2 reg. cans), 1 bottle of juice, 1 bag of dried beans, 1 can of cranberry sauce, 1 can of chicken or turkey gravy, 1 box of macaroni and cheese, 1 bag of sugar, 1 package of cookies, 2 Jiffy Cornbread mixes, and a $25 gift card to Kroger (to purchase a turkey).  You can add any additional non-perishable items if you would like.

Please contact Ed Mell at or 849-2751 regarding what you or your group can provide.
