The FEED-A-FAMILY Thanksgiving Food Program, operating in Queen Anne’s County has been providing food boxes for families for twenty years. The program serves folks in Stevensville, Chester, Grasonville and Queenstown, delivering food and turkeys the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Last year nearly a thousand individuals benefited from this program.
We are asking local churches, businesses and organizations to display FEED-A-FAMILY Turkey Tags. We invite people throughout the community to choose a Turkey Tag from the tree and follow the directions on the tag for making up a box of food for a family. Many folks participate in the Adopt-A-Bear and Angel Tree Project at Christmas time and this is a take off of those successful programs.
If you would be interested in helping you could: Display Turkey Tags at your church or business, be on our planning or delivery team, donate grocery store gift cards, or pray for another successful year of serving folks in our area. Grocery cards could be sent to KIUMC, PO Box 308, Chester, MD, 21619 with attention to Thanksgiving Program.
