Every year for the past 19 years, we have had an annual Thanksgiving Giveaway in November.  It is a desire of this ministry to see that families in need have a wonderful Thanksgiving meal with their family.  Our goal is to try to provide each family with a traditional Thanksgiving meal including a turkey.  Each year, the need has gotten greater.  In 2014, Bread of Life provided over 1,700 families a traditional meal including a turkey.  Each year the cost of this one-day distribution has increased to now where expenses are over $30,000.  We have challenged ourselves in what can we do as individuals and as a ministry on what can be done to raise funds for this one-day affair, thus a  benefit auction and dinner was birthed.  So far, each year, this venture has raised enough funds for 1/3 of the expense, $10,000.
