O.Y.E.A. Thanksgiving Service Project (November 19, 2006)

Two participants gathering cans in their wagonOn Sunday, November 19, Lutheran youth from across the island gathered at St. John, Kailua, for their monthly O.Y.E.A. activity—a Thanksgiving service project. The youth came with 8 large boxes of canned goods for the windward foodbank.

Then they went out with wagons to gather more cans from the neighborhood around St. John.

Everyone with their bounty of cans 
While some were gathering cans others put together ready-to-prepare Thanksgiving dinners for needy families. Four were delivered, and others were taken to the foodbank for families to pick up later.
