Thanksgiving Volunteer Opportunities

2018 Thanksgiving Basket Assembly and Delivery Help Needed                                                         

Volunteers are needed on Saturday, November 17th to help Love INC and West Union Lutheran Church deliver Thanksgiving Baskets to local clients in the Eastern Carver County area.

Volunteers may be couples, families, friends, youth groups…anybody who wants to spend a few hours on a Saturday to help spread God’s message of love. Volunteers should report to the gymnasium at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Chaska at 10 a.m. to help assemble food baskets using food donations received from the community. Each volunteer group / family will be assigned 2-3 families (located within the Eastern Carver County area) to whom they will deliver food baskets, spend a little time with each family, and share a prayer with them.

We anticipate this event will take 2-3 hours total, including basket preparation and delivery time.

We hope you will join us!
