Holiday Food Baskets

For Thanksgiving, CUMC delivered 142 holiday food baskets to Western Fairfax Christian Ministries for distribution.  Among those are 42 baskets that families made individually at home.  Thank you!

For Christmas we will be providing another 150 food baskets, as well as sponsoring 50 “Fresh Food Packs.”  Each “Pack” will consist of a ham, turkey, or chicken, plus items such as eggs, butter, milk, and fresh fruit.

During the next few months, please prayerfully consider supporting this ministry by: (1) making a $50 gift to sponsor a basket for a local family in need, (2) making a $43 gift to sponsor a “Fresh Food Pack” via the online giving portal by clicking the blue button below, and/or (3) purchasing the supplies and making a basket at home!  If you would like to make a basket at home, please sign-up using the same blue button below.  (Please note- due to COVID guidelines, we will be unable to meet in person for our traditional packing and delivery of the baskets on the Saturdays before Thanksgiving and Christmas this year).  Approximately 24 hours after you sign-up, you will receive an email with a printable packing list to include with your basket and specific instructions to guide you. You can preview the packing list by clicking the purple buttons below.  Baskets should be delivered no later than Saturday, November 7th to Centreville UMC (6400 Old Centreville Road, Centreville, VA, 20121).

Whether you can help with one or a combination of the three options to support this ministry, any support you can provide will be much appreciated and gratefully accepted!

Please contact Chris Granberg at  to volunteer or for additional information.

Thank you again for your support!
