Thanksgiving Day marks a time each year to be particularly mindful of all the various ways in which we are able to give thanks. Yet it is easy to become discouraged in the struggle of life, when a season becomes difficult and the challenges to make ends meet overwhelm. In gratitude, Bel Air Church shares a portion of what we have been given as a gift of hope and as a demonstration of the love Jesus has for us.
For over 30 years, Bel Air Church’s Thanksgiving Boxes has helped feed over 11,000 families in the city of Los Angeles! Through the help of our Deacon Ministry, Bel Air Church has assembled and delivered over 1,100 boxes of food each year, with each one feeding a family of ten!
This year’s Thanksgiving Boxes may look different, but we are excited to continue this 30-year tradition! There are many ways you can participate and help:
Our annual Thanksgiving Boxes Build Day is on Saturday, November 21.

Areas of Need
WRITE A DIGITAL LETTER:
Every year, we include a letter from our church to those receiving Thanksgiving Boxes. This year we are inviting you to write a thoughtful letter, showing the Love of Christ and the Compassion of Bel Air Church. Possible ideas include prayers, Scripture, and encouragement. We will print them out and add a note to each box that gets distributed.
Help organize food, build and fill boxes.
*Volunteers must be age 12 and older. Social Distancing will be in effect. Masks are required.
Sign up to deliver boxes to our Partners throughout the city! (Vehicle required.)
See what a difference one Thanksgiving Box can make!
It is through joy that we offer this simple meal as a gift of love from our hearts and a testimony to the faithfulness of Jesus Christ.
