Bring Your Turkey to Church Day
Benefitting York County Food Bank
York County Food Bank is interested in partnering with churches throughout York County to participate in a "Bring Your Turkey to Church Day." Encourage your church to participate in this one-day event that will assure that hungry families have a joyous holiday meal this year! All you have to do is bring a frozen turkey to your service of participating churches on December 9. York County Food Bank volunteers will collect the turkeys after the service that day. Turkeys given through this county-wide event will be used in holiday meal boxes packed through the Give A Meal program. Contact Debbie Krout at 717-846-6435 to participate.
