Everyone is invited to share delicious food, community fellowship and deep faith as the community give thanks to the Lord for His many blessings.

Thanks to donations from Brent Maudlin, State Farm agent; Bedford Veterinary Medical Centre, which offered a free flea treatment in exchange for a food donation; and Walmart, Pendergrass said she has all the turkeys and hams for the dinner.

But Monetary donations have been down and the walk-in freezer went down destroying all of the frozen items inside. So the mission needs donations to purchase meats to provide daily meals.

Lawrence County Community Foundation and an anonymous donor made contributions towards the purchase of a new freezer.

Pendergrass says friends and family are storing turkeys and hams for the dinner until Jim Gore of Smokin Jim's smokes them for the Thanksgiving dinner.

Donations of potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, whole kernel corn, shredded mild and sharp cheese, yellow self-rising cornmeal, chicken broth, butter, stuffing, bread crumbs, cakes and pies, and cranberry sauce, butter, and dinner rolls are greatly appreciated.

To make a monetary donation, or volunteer to deliver meals, or to make arrangements for meal delivery, call (317) 480-0085 or (812) 329-1100.

Monetary donations can be mailed to Bertha's Mission Inc., P.O. Box 1022, Bedford, IN 47421.
