Almost Home is collecting donations, through the Zion Lutheran Church community, for their 18th Annual Thanksgiving Meal Food Drive. The Men’s BBQ & Bible Study group will be collecting the food and donations for this Food Drive. Men from the BBQ & Bible Study will be in the Church’s Narthex before and after every Saturday and Sunday Service between October 19th (Saturday) through November 17th (a Sunday). Last year Almost Home provided meals to over 325 families in our community and they anticipate a greater need this year.

Ways Zion Members Can Help:

Food Donation:Below is a list of the food donation items that are needed:

  • Stove Top Stuffing
  • Gravy (packets, jars, cans)
  • Canned Cranberry Sauce
  • Canned Yams
  • 1 lb. bag of rice (white or brown)
  • 1 lb. bag of beans (any variety)
  • Cake Mix (spice or pumpkin)

A Zion member can purchase a $15 King Soopers Gift Card and give it to the Men’s BBQ & Bible Study individual at the Narthex collection site who will turn over the gift cards to Almost Home to distribute.
