This year is the 40th anniversary of the association between the First Baptist Church of Palo Alto and the Ecumenical Hunger Program (EHP). In 1975, a group of church women joined with a group of East Palo Alto women to help with emergency food, clothing, and household items for families in East Palo Alto.
This program has grown to include nutrition and health classes, holiday food baskets, and several parties for children. They also provide youth programs, computer access for youth, and many more services.
Our church family also gathers canned goods, produce, and turkeys for Thanksgiving.
This year, EHP has asked us to deliver all of our canned goods, produce, and turkeys by FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2015.
That means that on or before Sunday, November 15th, we can bring to the church:
- FROZEN turkeys (please put frozen turkeys in the freezer in the kitchen)
- Non-perishable fruits and vegetables, canned and boxed goods
(a basket is in the Narthex for canned and boxed goods)
Perishable vegetables and fruit and any non-frozen turkeys can be brought to the church on Friday, November 20th before Noon.
Thank you for your generosity.
