Thanksgiving In a Box
For the third year in a row In His Name has partnered with Lakewood Baptist Church to provide Thanksgiving food boxes to the residents at In His Name apartment communities in Gainesville. Meeting at 8:30 in the morning at Lakewood Baptist church over 75 volunteers put together over 600 boxes of food to distribute to the apartment communities. Having filled up three trucks full of boxes, more volunteers divided into four groups to distribute the food to Melrose, Tower Heights, Harrison Square, and Norwood apartments.
Residents from the communities came to help with the distribution, and everything went as smooth as possible. It was a cool morning, so hot chocolate and coffee were given out as well. Several volunteers visited in the line to visit with the residents and to pray with them. The residents were quick to give a smile and a show of appreciation for what was being done. Everyone left feeling blessed.
