Saint Ambrose Thanksgiving Day Community Meal

Saint Ambrose Parish Thanksgving Community Meal 2

With your help this Thanksgiving, our parish will be providing 7,500 meals for our brothers & sisters here in our community and in the greater Akron & Cleveland areas. We need YOUR help to make this happen.  We need hundreds of volunteers to help in the days before, and the day of Thanksgiving.  We need help of every kind (cooking, carving, setting up, packing meals, etc).

With your help, many people will be able to enjoy a true Holiday Dinner thanks to the Saint Ambrose Parish Community Meal.   It’s one more example of the good we do together for the Lord and those in need.

In this season of giving thanks, May God bless you abundantly for your goodness, generosity and support.  Together we are bringing the care and compassion of Christ to our community and those in need.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.”

Donate Turkey and Pies!

Our annual turkey and pie collection will be the weekend of November 10/11.
Our goal is 650 turkeys and 400 apple and pumpkin pies! Thank you, as always, for your generosity.

Become Involved!

It takes an army of over 800 to bring the Thanksgiving Meal together!
