Event Series Event Series: Thanksgiving Exchange

Thanksgiving Exchange

November 17, 2022 @ 9:00 am 1:00 pm

It’s time again to get ready for the City Gospel Mission’s Thanksgiving Exchange and The Christmas Store. Westwood First will host these events again for the fifth year and we need your help!

How it Works
A network of participating urban churches refer families in need to City Gospel Mission. Again this year, WFPC will be referring families identified by Westwood School. At the Thanksgiving Exchange, such families can pay $10 and in exchange, they can select from a wide variety of food items, including a ham or turkey, to provide their family with a nice Thanksgiving dinner.

COVID-19 Precautions
This year, we’ll again be following CDC recommendations regarding COVID-19 precautions. Overall, the strategy is to:
Limiting the number of rooms used and number of people who will be inside, as well the time spent there.
We will observe the limits of 3 shoppers in the Hospitality Room and 3 folks shopping at any one time. People will wait in their cars until the staff indicate that they are ready for more shoppers.
