Mission of the Month: Thanksgiving Food Drive

by Betsy deVenny | October 27, 2020

Thanksgiving “Stuffing” Food Drive

Can you believe we are already three weeks into October?  With Thanksgiving just over one month away, we have decided to partner once again with Minnie’s Food Pantry to hold a food drive for their 12thAnnual Thanksgiving Giveaway.

Unfortunately, under the best circumstances, there are many people who may not have the means to provide a Thanksgiving meal for their family.  Now that we are continuing to battle the Coronavirus, even more members of our community are in dire straits and would not be able to celebrate Thanksgiving without the help of Minnie’s.

Recently, I contacted Cheryl “Action” Jackson to see what Minnie’s needed most, and she asked if I would please host a food drive focusing on collecting 3,000 6 oz. boxes of Stovetop Stuffing.  So, for The Jan Richey Team’s October Mission of the Month, we would like to help Ms. Jackson meet her goal.  I would like to challenge each of you to please flood Minnie’s mailbox with boxes of stuffing!

In order to minimize person-to-person contact, we are asking you to please send stuffing directly to:

Minnie’s Food Pantry
c/o The Jan Richey Team’s Stuffing Drive
661  18th St.
Plano, TX 75074

For your convenience, we have created an Amazon Stovetop Stuffing Drive Wishlist:


Please send your stuffing donations prior to Thursday, November 5, so that the wonderful folks at Minnie’s will have ample time to prepare for their Thanksgiving Giveaway.

Thank you in advance for helping provide a Thanksgiving meal to members of our community.  This is an unprecedented time for all of us, and we genuinely appreciate your continued support of our Missions of the Month.  Praying for everyone’s health and safety this Fall.

Thank you and God Bless,

Jan Richey
