Trinity Turkey Drive

23-November-2020

 On Saturday- 21-November the Trinity Lutheran Church in Bogota held their annual Turkey Drive to assist those who may need help in having a Thanksgiving meal this year. Trinity Pastor Lisa Holliday, and members of the congregation were on hand to greet everyone who brought  a donation. Theses items that were accepted included frozen Turkeys and non-perishable food items, along some household good to help prepare a Thanksgiving dinner.  A number of younger members of the church were also on hand to collection items. While waiting for  donations to arrive, they passed the time in colouring a Thanksgiving table cloth to add some more brightness to the day 
   This year they are working in cooperation with St. Peter's Church of River Edge. The donated items will go to the Community Food Bank of New Jesey. In addition to supplying meals for those in need the Community  Food Bank of New Jesey can provide other servicesThey are an organization based in Hillsdale, NJ to fight hunger and poverty in New Jersey by assisting those in need and seeking long-term solutions.
