Many families are facing a SHOCK this Thanksgiving. We can help thousands. Please see below. --Gary
America's growing inflation crisis is going to hit families hard this holiday season. The New York Times is reporting that this year's Thanksgiving meal will be "the most expensive meal in the history of the holiday." According to the Times...
"Nearly every component of the traditional American Thanksgiving dinner, from the disposable aluminum turkey roasting pan to the coffee and pie, will cost more this year, according to agricultural economists, farmers and grocery executives. Major food companies like Nestlé and Procter & Gamble have already warned consumers to brace for more price increases."
+ + Families can't afford Thanksgiving...
The cost of turkey, sweet potatoes.... even vanilla extract... are all up. A staffer with the Congressional Leadership Fund said "working families can't even afford to celebrate the holidays this year."
The situation is even worse in disaster-stricken communities where Mercy Chefs has served this year. Many do not even have homes equipped to cook a turkey. And now that costs are rising, we know that many families will go without a real Thanksgiving meal.
That's why Mercy Chefs' holiday outreach is even more critical this year. The week of Thanksgiving, we'll be back in Southeast Louisiana serving full Thanksgiving dinners to Hurricane Ida victims. We'll also be providing meals for other communities hit by disaster or facing serious economic after-effects of the pandemic and now inflation crisis.
Mercy Chefs will provide THOUSANDS with what may be their only Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner this holiday season. Now, I need your help...
If you haven't done so already, would you MATCH what your family will spend on your Thanksgiving meal with a corresponding gift to Mercy Chefs to set a "second table" for a hurting family? If your family typically spends about $60 on Thanksgiving, your $60 gift to Mercy Chefs will actually set THREE "second tables" for three families of four! Your $100 gift will set FIVE "second tables" for families.
The past 18 months have been extremely tough times for families. Many of those who have been hit by natural disasters in the past year are still reeling. This can make the holiday season the most difficult time of the year.
By partnering with Mercy Chefs and setting a "second table" for three, five or even ten families this holiday season, you can make a practical difference in many lives!
Thank you so much for your prayers and your partnership.
May God bless you,
Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs
P.S. We can serve a full Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner for about $5. That means your gift of $60 will provide Thanksgiving dinner for THREE families of four; $100 feeds FIVE families of four a Thanksgiving meal! Please consider matching or exceeding what your family will spend on Thanksgiving dinner. Go here to make your tax-deductible gift to help sponsor holiday meals for those less fortunate:
