In a decade-old Thanksgiving tradition, Eastridge Church plans to deliver 1,000 turkeys and bags of groceries to families in need Saturday.
The church distributes dinner packages on a first-come, first-served basis, and no demonstration of need is required for assistance. The giveaway continues as long as supplies last.
“The Thanksgiving season is a time to we all naturally reflect on our lives and the good things that we’re experiencing, but it can also be a difficult time for families with limited resources,” Lead Pastor Steve Jamison said in a statement.
The event starts at 9 a.m. at the church’s Sammamish Plateau campus, 24205 S.E. Issaquah-Fall City Road.
“We want to show our community that Eastridge cares by providing a blessing this Thanksgiving to those who may be struggling to make ends meet,” Jamison said. “This is our 10th year providing a turkey and bag of groceries to families and this year we’ll also be giving away free haircuts from stylists who attend Eastridge, coats and gloves for children and adults, and Bibles.”
Eastridge Church leaders plan to distribute dinner packages at the same time at the church’s West Seattle campus, 4500 39th Ave. S.W.
