Help us help families in need in our community this Thanksgiving.
Providing Thanksgiving Meals
In 1993, First Christian Church began leading this initiative with 100 meals served. This Thanksgiving, the initiative has expanded to include 5 churches and serve 10,000+ meals in our community! This will be the 11th year that RiverTree is involved!
RiverTree is partnering with Stark County Area Churches to serve together and make an impact in Stark County by providing Thanksgiving meals to those in need. RiverTree plans for 1,500+ meals to come from our kitchen alone. So we need your help!
