ACTC – Thanksgiving Baskets

Help the Assistance Center of Towson Churches (ACTC) bless Towson families this Thanksgiving by donating a bag of non-perishable food items. Our goal this year is to provide 85 bags or more! Let the grocery store do the shopping for you and purchase a bag from one of the stores listed below or pack a bag using the shopping list. Both lists can also be picked up from the ServeCentral table.

PLEASE DO NOT PUT MONEY OR GIFT CARDS IN BAGS.
