Fill a BIG need Thanksgiving afternoon. You’ll be much appreciated! We are looking for a fresh crew, arriving to give weary workers a rest. You are “the Cavalry” riding in to finish the day in strength. This begins at 3:30 (come at 4 if you must). For seriously thankful people who want to get happy in the Lord and get the job over. Many hands, many muscles, and many serving hearts make light work!

Serve the Lord, and make a difference in Baltimore City!
