Our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive is here! 

Our 2021 goal is to provide Thanksgiving meals for 300 families in need. To reach — or exceed! — our goal we need help. Can you pitch in and buy food, help pack bags, and hand out meal bags on distribution day in mid-November? 

Meals are distributed through the RSM Cares Food Pantry. The food shopping list is right here.

Here’s our timeline:

All donations are needed by Monday, November 15 and may be dropped off at St. John’s Church Monday through Friday during office hours.

Bag packing day is at St. John’s Saturday and Sunday, November 13 and 14, 1 to 4 p.m. Community members are invited to help pack bags; your help is greatly appreciated! Please email Roger Bradshaw to let him know you’ll help. If you have questions, call Roger: 949.505.4663.  Items brought to the office Monday, November 15 will be packed that day. 

Help and vehicles are needed to load bags into transport vehicles at St. John’s beginning at 10am on Wednesday, November 17. It’s a short drive from the church to the RSM Cares Food Pantry location.

Distribution of bags to the families is Wednesday, November 17 from 2 to 5 p.m. at Shepherd of the Hills United Methodist Church, 30605 Ave. de Las Flores, RSM.

Thank you for helping families in need enjoy an incredible Thanksgiving meal. Your support is so appreciated.
