Saturday, November 19, 2011, was a day of service at Abiding Grace; a day to show our thankfulness by giving to others in need. There were three projects: Habitat for Humanity, Community Thanksgiving dinner and collecting for a food bank. A slideshow and details are below (thanks to our photographers, Karen Hurtado and Patti Langsdale):

Service Day of Thanks and Giving

Habitat for Humanity.
A group of 15 landscaped a Trinity Habitat for Humanity home in Fort Worth, turning a blank piece of dirt into a yard with a tree, bushes, flowers and sod.

Good Shepherd Community Thanksgiving Dinner.
Another 15 members provided arms and legs to help serve at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church community Thanksgiving dinner. Good Shepherd (Irving) prepared a full Thanksgiving dinner to which everyone was welcome. They served 333 this year! 

Fishes and Loaves food bank.
We also collected food for the Fishes and Loaves food bank in Irving. Last Thursday, three trucks from Abiding Grace delivered over 1,150 pounds of food to help replenish the food pantry for Thanksgiving.
