For many years Plymouth’s Thanksgiving offering has been given to help our Metro Des Moines neighbors in-need. Plymouth Church will continue this long tradition of giving thanks for what we have by giving this year’s Thanksgiving collection to the following initiatives:
- Family Promise of Greater Des Moines provides temporary housing and daily needs, as well as counseling services, to help obtain jobs, keep children in school, and find new housing. Last year Family Promise served 27 families – 33 adults with 72 children.
- Shelter Meals are provided by Plymouth Church on the 26th and 27th of each month at Central Iowa Shelter & Services. These funds will initiate a “whole” of Church concept where all participate in funding these meals and where anyone may sign-up to serve the meal without the “burden” of purchasing and preparing the meal.
- Plymouth’s Good Samaritan Fund provides for urgent, usually emergency funds for community members, covering costs such as rent assistance, utility bills, medical and medicine, and bus/travel expense.
Be sure to mark your donation as designated for the Thanksgiving Special Offering gifts. This includes all envelopes, checks and on-line donations. Your online gifts may be made at plymouthchurch.com/donations/make-a-donation – note for Thanksgiving Offering. Checks may be mailed to Plymouth Church Attn: Nancy Bassett, 4126 Ingersoll Ave., Des Moines, IA 50312 – memo for Thanksgiving Offering.
Thank you for your generosity in helping homeless and in-need, Des Moines neighbors.
