One of the best things Smoke Rise does is reach out to our neighbors at Thanksgiving time. For many years now we have been helping our neighbors have a more bountiful Thanksgiving. The co-op team will once again coordinate a collection and packing of hundreds of baskets to go to needy families distributed through the Lilburn and NETWorks coops.
After we join together with family on our traditional Sunday evening dinner we will go to the gym and pack baskets with our families to send off to the two co-ops.
This is one of my favorite mission endeavors. I love seeing the joy of fellowshipping together followed by the joy of serving others as a family. The next morning the co-op generally has a line waiting to receive these baskets.
Laura and I will be bringing items to fill more than one basket. Won’t you join us in making someone’s holiday a little brighter this year?
