MEAC Virtual Thanksgiving Boxes
Each year, Church of the Redeemer provides 200 Thanksgiving Day meals for the clients of Madisonville Education and Assistance Center (MEAC). We are the core supporters of this meaningful contribution to food security in our neighborhood. Last year because of the pandemic, MEAC began a new way of collection that was very well received and appreciated by the families being supported. With this new Virtual program, families were given the ability to purchase their own Thanksgiving meals allowing for a more dignified and culturally sensitive approach.
This year we will fulfill our contribution again by raising funds to pay for the purchase of meal ingredients. Instead of directly providing the ingredients that may be typical to you for a Thanksgiving meal (i.e. mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, etc.), your financial contribution will safely provide a complete Thanksgiving dinner to families of diverse backgrounds in a fashion that would be traditional to them.
Meals cost $50 each, you are welcome to gift meals to multiple families, and you can pay by credit/debit card by using the form below. Alternately, if you prefer to make your donation by check please make it payable to Church of the Redeemer with “MEAC Thanksgiving Meals” in the memo line and mail it to our Director of Finance, Debbi Alsfelder at Church of the Redeemer, 2944 Erie Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45208.
We ask that you make your contributions no later than Sunday, October 24.
Thank you for your generous love for your neighbor.
