Annunciation will host a Thanksgiving Day meal this year for up to 150 people in need. The dinner will be served from 11am-1pm and is open to anyone in the community who would like to come. We will also provide meals to those who are homebound and unable to get out. The main course is being prepared and donated by the Audubon Institute’s Head Chef. We also need 20 volunteers the day of Thanksgiving to assist with serving, cleaning up, and preparation. We need volunteers from 8am-2:00pm. After the community meal is served, the day’s volunteers will be invited to sit down to a wonderful Thanksgiving Meal together in Vail Hall. Martha McKnight (504-228-1878 or MarthaCMcKnight@gmail.com) and Robin Yeager (504-295-4800 or Volunteer@AnnunciationEpiscopal.com) are on the organizing committee. Please contact Martha or Robin to sign up to help.

Little Free Pantry
Donations from the parish are welcome. Give them to Robin Yeager or to Kathy and Arthur Escalante so they can moderate the distribution. The pantry was generously donated by Gustavo Gutierrez and Janie Glade, a long-time friend of Annunciation, who will also maintain it. DONATION GUIDELINES: Food should be in easy-open containers that don’t require a can opener. We also need travel-sized toothpaste, toothbrushes, small packs of wet wipes and diapers, Ensure for infants and adults, and small packets of dry food such as cereal.
