Thanksgiving Special Offering 2020
Dear Plymouth Members,
As you prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, please consider a Special Offering gift that supports our Just Peace covenant – working toward economic and social justice for our Des Moines Metro Area neighbors.
The projects selected for this year’s gifts are:
Pastor’s Discretionary Fund: 10% of the Special Offerings will be allocated to Plymouth Pastor’s Discretionary Fund. These funds are directed to urgent needs of community members, covering items such as rent assistance, utility cost, medicine, and bus/travel expense.
Family Promise of Greater Des Moines: 60% of the remaining collection will be given to support FPGDM, which provides support to families experiencing homelessness.
Food Buddies: 40% of the remaining collection will be given for this Plymouth’s initiative with Hubbell Elementary School that provides for weekend meals for students experiencing food insecurity.
To keep our Church Family safe and healthy, there will be no in person Thanksgiving services. Please make your gifts online at plymouthchurch.com/give (see more details below) or mail your check with memo line “Thanksgiving Gifts” to Plymouth Church Attn: Nancy Bassett, 4126 Ingersoll Ave., Des Moines, IA 50312.
Thank you for your generosity,
Plymouth Board of Benevolences
