Immanuel has committed to host a Thanksgiving Day luncheon on November 22 for the Adopt-A-Sailor program through Great Lakes Naval Base. We are excited to host anywhere from 40-50 sailors to come to Immanuel so they can share a Thanksgiving Day meal with us.
This is where we need your help. We need individuals and families to enjoy the meal with them, so they can connect with an adopted family for the day! This is a tremendous outreach effort to our sailors who cannot join their families for Thanksgiving. We are also looking for people to help with the meal preparations and serving the food.
Jewel Foods has graciously agreed to provide the turkey and some trimmings. Bus transportation for the sailors will be provided. We need people willing to share their cell phones with the sailors so they can call their families.
Please consider being a part of this wonderful day by giving our sailors some of your time! Please contact Art Ellingsen about the program and Denise Neilson regarding volunteering for serving. Sign-up sheets will be available in Fellowship Hall.
We are looking for help Wednesday night for room set up. Help on Thursday: prepping food, serving, and clean-up. Please come and adopt a Sailor by eating and chatting with them. Stop by the table in Fellowship Hall to sign up for this event. You can still be home in time for your own Thanksgiving dinner!
