Thanksgiving is fast approaching and plans are underway for another monumental Thanksgiving dinner distribution in the Grand Valley.

Canyon View Vineyard Church is preparing for it's annual Thanksgiving meal preparation event on Wednesday, November 21st and the distribution of meals on Thanksgiving Day. It takes about 500 volunteers to prepare and deliver some 2000 meals in the Grand Junction area.

If you are interested in volunteers some of your time to help this cause you are asked to call  408-0474 or email  anissam@canyonviewchurch.com.

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to reflect on the good things in our lives and for some, it presents an opportunity to give back to the community where they live. Each year, hundreds of folks discover it truly is more blessed to give than to receive.

Maybe you will consider being a volunteer. This isn't about one church's operation. This is about a group of people reaching out to the less fortunate, the shut-ins, the lonely - and bringing a bit of joy into their lives during the holiday.
