2018 CAYA Thanksgiving Outreach

This year’s Thanksgiving Outreach is scheduled for Saturday, November 17, 2018. Our goal is to provide Thanksgiving meal bags and frozen hens to 500 families in Dallas, Hiram and the surrounding area.

There are four very specific ways that you can help us feed families in Paulding County this Thanksgiving.
1.) Donate Food Items – (see the list at the bottom of this page)  Consider calling or emailing to learn what the greatest needs are at the time of your donation. All food donations must be received by Friday, November 9, 2018. Call CAYA at 770-445-9303 for more info or for donation drop off info.

2.) Donate financially to help purchase the turkeys and any food items not provided – The hens will be ordered soon by CAYA and the bill will be coming soon. Please consider helping us cover the cost of the hens and any canned or boxed goods that we may need to purchase. (Click on “Donate Here” button below.)

3.) Help us deliver the food bags – Please mark your calendar now. We will deliver all 500 food bags on Saturday, November 17, 2018. We need lots of help that day. Please call us or respond to this email if you would like to help deliver the food on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. We would love your hands, feet and hearts to serve with us. Please let us know if you plan to help that day by clicking on the “Open Form” button below.

4.) Pray – Pray that God supplies all of what we need (food, finances and helpers) to accomplish this outreach. Pray for the recipients of the food bags to experience God's love and encouragement.
