Christmas Food Baskets 2020
This has been a different year than the last few for the collection of food and delivery of our annual food baskets. We deliver food baskets to 3 different groups each year: Harvest Point low income apartments, Family Housing Network, and a few individuals from our own church.
In the past, before 2020 Covid-19, the food baskets for Harvest Point included a variety of food items that would go into a Christmas dinner, a small fun gift, a grocery gift card to Safeway or King Soopers for $25, and a Christmas card from the church. They were delivered to the individual apartments by church members.
This year, I contacted Laurie Jenson, manager of Harvest Point, in late October. She put up a sign-up sheet in the building for those who would be interested in receiving a gift from FUMC. Then in November she provided me with this list of 46 residents. Since we could not deliver the gifts to the residents this year, her daughter volunteered to put them out for us. The smaller bags that I made included a Christmas water bottle ordered on-line from Dollar Tree, with a Safeway gift card inside worth $35, and a Christmas card from FUMC.
