Last year, St. Bart's donated complete Thanksgiving dinners to nearly 70 needy families. This year we hope to do more! On Sunday, November 18, we will be collecting food and delivering it to families living in transitional housing sponsored by Interfaith Community Services in Escondido. Each basket will include all the ingredients necessary to prepare a complete Thanksgiving meal, along with recipes and instructions. Please visit the Thanksgiving Basket table on the church patio between the 9:30 and 11:15 services on November 4 and 11 for more information and to pick up a shopping list. Please plan to return all of the food items during the 9:30 service on Sunday, November 18. We deliver the baskets to the ICS families after the 11:15 service on that day.
