Turkey Truck

We start our Thanksgiving season by collecting whole turkeys and cash donations for those in need.  The Sunday before Thanksgiving, Tom brings his truck to the church parking lot where we drop off the turkeys.  After the service, Tom and the team go to the local supermarket to purchase items to make a Thanksgiving feast.  Every year, Sheila (part of the team) always seems to run into a customer who wants to help by giving a cash donation or add items to her food cart.  Yes, Sheila has a contagious personality.  The Turkey Truck and their team take their bounty to the local shelter.

Name that Pillowcase

Georgia and her friend, Diane, create and design personalized pillowcases for Foster Children in Santa Clara County.  Pillowcases are coordinated with fabric by girl/boy and their first name is embroidered on each pillowcase.  Once the pillowcases are finished and ready to be delivered, they are dropped off at the Bill Wilson Center where Heather has new pillows that have been donated.  These precious gifts will be given to the foster child for Christmas.
