November 20, 2012
In a decade-old Thanksgiving tradition, Eastridge Church delivered 1,000 turkeys and bags of groceries to families in need Nov. 17.
The church distributed dinner packages on a first-come, first-served basis, and no demonstration of need was required for assistance.
“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.
Church leaders held the event simultaneously at its Sammamish Plateau and West Seattle campuses.
“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 continued.
