  7. Warm Fuzzies are supporting Christian Care

If you are interested in participating in Thanksgiving Essential Baskets but do not fall into one of the the seven groups listed above, please contact Sara Wynn to help us support the remaining three organizations. We will also need volunteers to deliver the completed baskets.
