On Thanksgiving Day, Golden Hills Community Church held its annual free Thanksgiving Dinner at Veterans Hall in Brentwood. This year we served nearly 1,200 meals between those served at the hall and delivered to homes, gave away nearly 200 bags of groceries, 2,000 pounds of potatoes, and also a great deal of clothing.
We couldn’t have done it without a lot of help from the community. There were hundreds of people who helped in many different ways from inside and outside the church body. I couldn’t possibly thank them all by name, but there are some who deserve special recognition for their generous donation of their time, supplies, and/or money.
In no particular order, they are the American Legion Post 202, Brentwood Ace Hardware and Jerry Thorpe, Ralph’s Catering and Ralph and Charlene Skelton, Joe Champlain, Dave and Linda Crippin, Sue Harris, Dale and Erin Dameral, Kim Jones, Al and Nellie Garcia, Drew Hanson, Gail Lescher, Nancy McDaniel, Betty Walker, Dainty Center, Celebration Christian School, Golden Hills Christian School, the Brentwood Press, the Contra Costa Times, Brentwood Men’s Club, Food Maxx, Got-A-Party, Trader Joe’s, Raley’s, and Bart Schneider and his group of Edna Hill students.
