GCC Thanksgiving Day Volunteers

2018 GCC Thanksgiving Day Volunteer Registration

Thank you for your participation on this special day.  To sign-up for a slot and to receive email notifications, please note that you will need to create an account.  We appreciate you doing so and look forward to serving with you.

It take a village to make this event a success. With typically over 200 volunteers, we do our best to ensure that those who sign up are busy during their time slot. Please be flexible and patient as we need people at their stations at certain times ready at a moment's notice. Should you find yourself with time on your hands, we encourage you to be in fellowship with our guests. This means more to them than you can ever imagine. 

Every little bit helps!  If you can't join us on Thanksgiving, there are other ways to contribute. This year we have added the shopping list and asking for assistance to purchase non-perishable items in advance.  All donations will be tracked through this sign-up so we know how much to purchase the week before.  All items must be at the church by Sunday Nov. 11th.  

If you would like to provide a financial donation, please mark this with "GCC Thanksgiving Day event" and either include with the offering or give it to Volunteer Sign-up committee in between services on Sunday at the narthex. 

If you have any questions, please send an email (see below) and we will get back to you shortly.

You will be contacted one week prior to the event via email by the team lead with further details.
