Thanks for a Successful Thanksgiving!
Each year Xavier Mission provides a Thanksgiving Day dinner for disabled and senior members of our community, dinner delivery to homebound community members, dinner baskets (including turkeys!) to our Food Pantry families, and a special Thanksgiving Welcome Table lunch, totaling nearly 4000 meals!
With ONE DAY LEFT we are only $1,812 away from our goal of $25,000 for our Thanksgiving Meal Fund! Please donate now to the Xavier Community Fund below and help put us over the top!
