Thanks to all the members of St. James’ Episcopal, Austin, who took food baskets to their work to collect food for our Holiday Food Drive. We collected 15 baskets full of wonderful food for families at St. James’ Episcopal School. Twenty five bags of food were packed and given to families from our school so they could have a Thanksgiving feast. Each family received an HEB card to buy a turkey or ham for their family meal. It will be a happy Thanksgiving for these families this year.
Some members of St. James’ Church asked if we could have a similar food drive for the Christmas season. So we will have baskets in the Narthex again this Sunday and on December 8. We will donate the food to families of our neighbors who attend Neighbor 2 Neighbor on December 17. So please return the basket full of food to church by December 15.
