26th annual Thanksgiving food drive
Crossroads Church will collect Thanksgiving food boxes for distribution Nov. 21.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Crossroads Church has kicked off its 26th annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. Crossroads Church gave out boxes Sunday morning to be filled with a Thanksgiving meal and given to those in need.
Crossroads says it has 10 branches across Kentucky and Ohio and hopes to reach between 100,000 homes. For the first time in 26 years, the church says the boxes will be distributed by members of the church instead of by some of their partnering organizations. Thanksgiving Food Drive boxes will be given out again next Sunday and collected for drop off on November 21st.
“We want to share the love, the joy, the hope, the peace that Jesus gives us with people throughout the city,” says Crossroads Church Community Pastor John Gillispie. “There’s a real hurt, there’s a real need right here in our own community and that’s what God calls us to is to go meet those needs.”
