Sack Sunday and the Christmas Store Gift Drive

Benefitting the Highland Food Pantry 
Drive-By Offering on Sunday, November 8 at 10:00am-12:00pm

Highland's annual Sack Sunday Thanksgiving Food Offering happened for the first time in November 1985, making this year's offering Highland's 35th anniversary of participating in the restoration of Abilene through sharing food with our neighbors and community. 

This year has been full of "drive-by" parades, parties, and other celebrations, and Highland's adopting this format for the 2020 Sack Sunday and Christmas Story Gift Drive. 

On Sunday, November 8, we invited you to drop off your contribution at the Highland Food Pantry (701 Walnut). Volunteers will be ready to receive your sacks of food and/or gifts for the Christmas Store. When you arrive, you will see red and white signs that will provide you with traffic flow instructions.

Grocery sacks and suggested shopping list will be available at HIghland's worship venues - Highland's main building (425 Highland Ave) and Highland at the Park (Nelson Park Festival Gardens).
