Press release from Western Carolina Rescue Ministries:

Western Carolina Rescue Ministries (WCRM) is pleased to announce its partnership with Elevation Church-Asheville to distribute Thanksgiving boxes on Tuesday, November 24th during our weekly food box distribution, here at Western Carolina Rescue Ministries (225 Patton Ave).

Elevation Church-Asheville is assembling 150 Thanksgiving boxes, which they will then distribute to the community. Each box will contain non-perishable Thanksgiving meal staples such as corn, green beans, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, biscuits or cornbread mix, macaroni and cheese, canned mushroom soup, and stuffing mix. These items will be accompanied by a $15 gift card to Aldi, Food Lion or Walmart, to be used for the purchase of a Turkey to accompany the meal.

Elevation Church-Asheville will receive the food from Elevation Church’s central team in Charlotte, NC, and will be assembling the boxes as a church group. They will then bring 75 of the boxes to Western Carolina Rescue Ministries and send 75 to ABCCM.
