Medford Gives Thanks – Gratitude Gathering and Food Drive

All Medford Girl Scouts (and Boy Scouts) are invited to help with this year’s Medford Give Thanks Interfaith Gratitude Gathering and Food Drive.  Attendees are asked to bring food for Medford’s Community Cupboard Food Pantry and St. Raphael’s Food Pantry, and the Scouts are asked to help gather the food that day.  In addition, they will also need some Scouts to be greeters to hand out programs, and ushers to assist with the collection plates for the offering during the service.  This is not a drop-off event and families are asked to arrange for an adult to attend with their girls, if they can’t come themselves. Girls are encouraged to wear their vests or sashes.

Medford Give Thanks is organized by the Medford Interfaith Clergy Association and they invite our city to give thanks for one another. It is a blessing to be neighbors in this wonderful city! Join the service to celebrate the diverse and varied religious traditions of our city with prayer and music.
