Bake and carve a turkey for Ethnos Church urban community meal

Again this year Northbrook will be providing baked/carved turkeys for a community Thanksgiving meal being held at Ethnos Church in Milwaukee on Saturday, November 17.  Ethnos is a local ministry partner of Northbrook that serves a community of low-income and immigrant families as well as international students who wish to experience the American Thanksgiving holiday.

If you would like to provide a baked/carved turkey, please email Laura Holmes to sign up.  Carved turkeys should be dropped off at Northbrook in the kitchen refrigerator in a disposable container labeled “Ethnos Church” on Thursday Nov. 15 or Friday Nov. 16, between 9 AM and 5 PM.  

Our goal is 12 turkeys!
