Once again, Temple Beth Shalom’s Social Justice Committee has opted to join forces with the Bag ‘n Hand Food Pantry sponsored by our neighbor St. John’s United Methodist Church to provide food for Thanksgiving meals to families in need of assistance. The Bag ‘n Hand Food Pantry will provide 360 families a box containing either a turkey or a ham, an apple or pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, margarine, rolls, green beans, and potatoes. Each box will cost $27 and serve 4 to 6 people. Please donate as generously as you can by either:

(i) Mailing a check (write “Pantry Thanksgiving” in the memo line) payable to St. John’s United Methodist Church to 1200 Old Pecos Trail, Santa Fe, NM 87505, or

(ii) Making an online donation using PayPal or a credit or debit card on the Church’s website. For the latter, go to sjumcsantafe.org/bag-n-hand-food-pantry-2/, scroll down  to “How Can I financially Support the Pantry” and click on “HERE” which will take you to the church's PayPal donation page. Enter the amount you wish to give and use the dropdown to donate to Food Pantry Thanksgiving Dinner.  Select your payment method. Then, write your email or mailing address in the “Write a Note” section so St. John’s can acknowledge your donation.

In addition to supporting The Food Pantry with monetary donations, we are also teaming up with our friends at HaMakom to collect

food items which will be donated to both Youth Shelters & Family Services and the SFPS Adelante Program Please purchase items and drop them off at TBS for our Youth Group to assemble into meal bags.  Each bag should include:

2 cans of fruit

2 cans of soup

2 cans of cranberry sauce

2 large bags/boxes of stuffing

4 cans of veggies (beans, corn, peas)
