It's all about relationships this Thanksgiving Day!
I was amazed at the turn out last night and the number of volunteers! It is so awesome to know we live in such a caring community! I know you will be blessed big for loving people like Jesus did! - Pam

I wanted to say thank you for having me. It was a good time. I was very worried when you said "to sit and visit" with someone. I thought I would be taking out trash or washing dishes; however, it turned out pretty good. I met an older gentleman named Bob. What struck me the most was just how lonely he was. Please let me know next time you have an event so I can see if I can volunteer my time.

Thanks again - Ashley


Was such a privilege to serve! What a blessing & the outpouring of loved just couldn't be measured." - Charlene


"My wife and I had a great time last night helping, serving food to other people and giving back to the community!" - Frank


Thank you for an opportunity my whole family enjoyed being a part of.  When we returned home we gave thanks again for all we have.  We are so blessed. - Connie


My husband and I helped last year, and had a wonderful time and have been looking forward to doing it again. You can count on us to be there. Last year I mainly worked in the thrift store, and my husband helped in the parking lot, and w/ set up in the dining area. We are willing to do whatever you need us to do the most. Thanks for letting us be a part of this. - Dena


I am writing to thank you for this past Thanksgiving meal! I was a part of the companion team that helped minister to the needy that evening. I am a 23 year old single girl and felt led to serve this Thanksgiving (something I've wanted to do for quit sometime). Such a rewarding experience! Thanks for all that you do for the community. - Emily


Thank you for allowing us to help today. We worked the thrift store and it was one of the best thanksgivings I've ever had! And the food was incredible!! Thank you! We met and worked with some fantastic people. I am impressed with how organized everything was and smoothly this huge event was accomplished. Kudos to JWH!! - Alice


Many, many, thanks for that wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner. The less fortunate of this area and the folks that have NO family in the area are very thankful for your ministry. Thanks again. - Chris
