Louisville church asking for donations to help fill Thanksgiving meal baskets

The more donations they receive, the more families they can help.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — St. Stephen Baptist Church needs the public's help with feeding the community. On Nov. 23, they're hosting a drive-thru Thanksgiving basket giveaway and they're hoping to get more donations before Monday. 

The more donations they receive, the more families they can help.

Right now, the church has around 300 people on their list to receive meals and they want to make sure they have enough food for everyone. Each Thanksgiving basket will be filled with items to put together a meal for the holiday.

The church is asking for donations of the following items:

  • Green beans (14.5 oz. cans)
  • Macaroni and cheese (7.25 oz. boxes)
  • Yams (15 oz. cans)
  • Cranberry sauce (14 oz. cans)

Donations can be dropped off at the Family Life Center on W. Kentucky St. between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 20.

"Even through the pandemic, God has been good to us and some of us still have an abundance that we can share," said Pat Mathison, a member of St. Stephen Baptist Church. "We're just calling on all people that can and are willing to, to be a blessing."
