Sligo Provides Thanksgiving for 600 Families

This is the 35th year that members of the Sligo Seventh-day Adventist Church in Takoma Park, Md., have shared food and funds with members of the community who are in need of a Thanksgiving meal. “This year the need is greater than ever before, and already more than 600 families have sought our help,” says Rebecca Brillhart, associate pastor. During Sabbath’s worship service, members of the 2,800-member congregation took part in a procession where they brought money and some 500 bags of groceries and toiletries to the pulpit. After the service, 10-year-old Matthew Dulcich and 11-year-old Sophia Virgo (pictured), members of the church’s Challengers Pathfinder Club, joined others who boxed and delivered the goods to the Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington headquarters, also in Takoma Park.
