NOVEMBER 17 FROM 3:30-7:15 PM AT HARBOR HOUSE
SERVING A THANKSGIVING FEAST TO HARBOR HOUSE FAMILIES
Update – Thank you for your generous donations! We met our target to fund the Thanksgiving Dinner. You can still sign up to bring a dinner item (homemade pie, dessert, water, fruit). Signups is closed for middle schoolers and volunteers.
For over 10 years, our MVPC community has provided a Thanksgiving feast shared by middle school students and families at Harbor House Ministries, one of our local mission partners in Oakland. We are excited that all Middle School students are invited to share a Thanksgiving meal with Harbor House families on Thursday, November 17th. The traditional Thanksgiving dinner will be provided by Town Bakery & Cafe and desserts will be homemade by MVPC families. This is meaningful and memorable opportunity for middle school students to make new friends and share the joy of Thanksgiving with the Harbor House students and families.
To donate a dinner item (homemade desserts, bottled water, fruit), sign up through the SignUpGenius Form:

Our friends at Town Bakery & Café are providing a traditional Thanksgiving dinner to feed 90 people, including turkey, mashed potatoes/gravy, mac ‘n’ cheese, dinner rolls/butter, and salad. Help fund this meal by donating money. Our target is $1500.
There are 20 spots available. First come, first serve. There is limited space at Harbor House. Drop off your student at MVPC at 3:30pm and they will be driven by an adult volunteer in a carpool with other students. Cars depart at 3:45pm for Harbor House. Return to MVPC around 7:15pm. We will text parents with an ETA. Please pick up your student at MVPC. Please know that there is no middle school program at Thursday Night Live on November 17th. Since some parents are picking up their 1st thru 5th grade students from TNL at 8pm, middle school students returning from Harbor House can hang out with adult leaders until 8pm pick up.
We need 6 adult volunteers to stay for dinner and drive students roundtrip from MVPC to Harbor House. Meet students at MVPC at 3:30pm, leave at 3:45pm to Harbor House, and return to MVPC at 7:15pm.
Please know that all volunteers (students and adults) must be fully vaccinated with a COVID vaccine. This is a requirement for anyone who volunteers at Harbor House. Complete the Harbor House Volunteer Application Form for each volunteer. Be ready to upload a file that provides COVID vaccination verification:
