Thanksgiving Baskets





On Thanksgiving Day we will offer our prayers of praise, thanksgiving and supplication before we participate in an annual feast surrounded by family and friends.  We will enjoy a great deal of bounty; reflecting on the generosity of our heavenly Father Who has provided and continues to provide abundantly.

Since 2011, Brookfield Lutheran Church and the South Wisconsin District have partnered together to provide a Thanksgiving meal for families in Milwaukee, Racine and Beloit. Individuals and congregations have shared some of their bounty with others, giving with a thankful heart from the gifts they have received.

Our goal this year is to touch the lives of 954 families with baskets containing a turkey, green beans, corn, rice, yams, stuffing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and topping, dinner rolls and apple juice. The members of Brookfield Lutheran Church will assemble and deliver the baskets as they have since 1993. But they need partners to help in this annual day of sharing.

Please consider being a partner as each basket costs approximately $30, and your generous financial gift will go a long way in sharing some of God’s abundance with others.  A financial donation of any size is appreciated and so are your prayers for the blessings of God upon this effort to share mercy and grace with others.

As always, if you have any questions please speak with your pastor or call the South Wisconsin District office
at (414) 464-8100 or burakowski@swd.lcms.org.
