Join us for Thanksgiving Dinner, November 28, 2013 from 12pm to 2pm in the Stark Room. All are welcome!
Lake Merritt Church is in its third decade providing a free Community Thanksgiving Dinner, and all are welcome!
Help is needed for this event to take place! Volunteers are needed to help with volunteer coordination, publicity, shopping, food preparation, set-up & clean up, and also to provide pies, tangerines and small boxes of raisins. We also need cash for food (especially turkeys), decorations and table settings. Remember, EVERYONE is welcome at the table.
- Publicity Help
Please help us post flyers around the church at offices, restaurants & businesses to spread the word about our free dinner. Let's make this the largest Thanksgiving Dinner yet!
- Musicians Needed
Musicians are asked to come and perform for our guests in the sanctuary on Thanksgiving Day between 11:30am - 3:00pm.
- Translators Needed
People who speak different languages, especially Vietnamese and Chinese, are needed to help translate for our guests between 11:30am and 1:30pm. We are also looking for an ASL interpreter.
- Financial Donations for Turkeys Needed
Instead of frozen turkeys, this year Lake Merritt UMC is requesting donations of funds for the purchase of the turkeys (so they can all be defrosted at the same time). Make checks payable to Lake Merritt UMC. Put “Thanksgiving” in the memo line.
