Mascoma Valley Thanksgiving Ingathering
November 2016 - The Annual Thanksgiving Ingathering for 2016 was a success thanks to our many generous friends and neighbors. Stay tuned for 2017!
Area churches including Community Lutheran Church, Millbrook Christian Fellowship, St. Helena Parish and St. Mary's Mission Catholic Churches, and the Mascoma Valley United Methodist Parish, along with local area Scout Units are working together on the Annual Ingathering project. We collect canned goods and nonperishable food items for Thanksgiving Food Baskets. (Sorry, we cannot accept home-baked or home-canned food.) Please check the expiration dates, as we cannot distribute items that have expired nor can we distribute open items.
- canned chicken
- fresh bagged potatoes
- carrots, etc.
- pie crust mix
- pie filling
- bread mixes
- cranberry sauce
- boxed potato dishes
- canned sweet potato
- stuffing mixes
- peanut butter
The weekend before Thanksgiving, we collect, organize and distribute Thanksgiving Baskets to neighbors in need. A turkey or precooked chicken is included in each box. Any items left over are donated to the Enfield and Canaan Friends Feeding Friends Food Pantries and the Mascoma Area Food Pantry at the Mascoma Area Senior Center in Canaan. To participate in this long-standing, worthwhile project, please place your contributions in this bag and do one of the following:
