Thanksgiving Meal & Celebration at Feed the Burg
in Eagles Park, Roseburg, OR, Saturday, Nov. 21st, Noon - 2pm
Join Feed the Burg in our 4th year for a Thanksgiving Meal for 100-200 poor and homeless in Douglas County and add your voice to the messages of gratitude for the ways that our community takes care of one another, is working for justice, and a better world.
Bring a potluck item to share, a tarp, sleeping bag, tent, socks, or candles to donate. Make a sign at the art table or speak at the open mic as we raise up our voices together in gratitude and hope for the community we are building!
Our community cannot bear any more divisions. There are some basic bottom lines that we all need and deserve -- food, housing, jobs that support a family with a decent wage, good schools, someone on the other end of the line when we dial 911.
Real security comes from being part of a community that has your back with support when you need it and action for justice when things aren’t right.
Join us on Saturday, November 21st, from 12 - 2pm and
give thanks for the ways we stand together in love and community.
