Thanksgiving Bag Giveaway
Tyler Family Assistance Center helps host First Baptist Church Tyler’s annual Thanksgiving Bag giveaway. We serve as many as 750 families the Saturday before Thanksgiving every year and bless them with a bag filled with everything they need for a traditional thanksgiving meal, including a fresh ham for every family. Bags are filled and collected by 100’s of church and community members in the weeks leading up to the event and then over 75+ volunteers help make the event itself a success each year. This community ministry has grown each year since it started in 2009.
