This Thanksgiving Feed the Need Missions partnered with churches and businesses to provide those in our community with a Thanksgiving meal kit through our Gobble Kit program. It was the first year we did this and the impact we saw in the community was incredible.

We had 467 families sign up across our seven Feed the Need locations, and with the help of the community, EVERY family who signed up was provided a Thanksgiving meal to serve their family.

We are so thankful to the churches and businesses that partnered with us to make a difference this Thanksgiving. And we are so thankful to the people who took the time to gather the supplies, donate funds, and volunteer to put the Gobble Kits together. It truly made a difference in the lives of these 467 families.

Margaret, who received a Gobble Kit, said “I wouldn’t have a Thanksgiving meal if it wasn’t for you guys.” And when she came to pick up her Gobble Kit she said “My heart is overjoyed with your team’s generosity.”

We also put together this video about our vision and experience during this first year we launched this Gobble Kit project. We hope you take a few minutes to watch a little insiders perspective to our hearts and desire to make an impact in our communities, especially during the holiday season.

 

Thank you to those who participated in providing a Gobble Kit this Thanksgiving. Because of you each family was blessed this season.

Our 2017 Feed the Need Annual Gala was a huge success! Thank you to all who attended this packed out event.

This year’s event raised $32,000, even more than last year! We are now almost to the halfway point of meeting our goal of $200,000 to cover our Bastrop-area sites for next year. We’ve also raised about 30% of our overall budget for next year and are so thankful for everyone’s support.

If you weren’t able to attend our event, it’s not too late to give. Would you consider making a monthly commitment of $20 or even $100? Your generosity will make a difference in so many people’s lives now and for the year to come. Simply click the donate button at the bottom to give today.

At the event, we also shared a big announcement. Mission U-Too is changing its name to Feed the Need Missions! We are so excited about this new chapter and hope you are too. Check out the video below with our new logo and our heart for our organization. You can read more about this change from our president, here.

We are so thankful to all of you who support our organization and help spread the love and message of Christ. It was wonderful to see so many new and familiar faces at our event this past weekend, and we are so looking forward to seeing what God does through your generosity this next year.
