Reach Out to a Family this Thanksgiving!

Every year since 2002, parishioners at Mary, Mother have made Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets for families in our community who need help in order to have a festive Thanksgiving celebration. Each Dinner Basket from Mary, Mother feeds a family of four and has a $25 CUB gift card for perishable dinner items (turkey, milk, pie, rolls, etc.). Last year we were able to make 451 Baskets for our neighbors.

You are needed for this to continue to be successful!

Here’s how you can help:

  • Donate any number of items for the Baskets. (See below)
  • Sign up after Mass to sponsor a family / create a complete dinner basket at home and bring in by Monday, November 12.
