In November 2021, Tillamook, Oregon's Tidebearers Pathfinder Club was handed a large stack of sturdy boxes by their local Adventist Community Services organization.
Club members spent a Sunday creatively decorating the boxes with fall and Thanksgiving art, then returned them to ACS. The Sunday before Thanksgiving, the boxes were packed with everything needed for a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner. The Pathfinders then delivered the boxes to local families.
The Tidebearers took on the same project in December, this time wrapping the boxes in Christmas wrapping paper. On the Sunday before Christmas, they gathered at ACS to load and deliver the boxes to families in the community. They even brought Christmas gifts for the children in each family.
This joyful collaboration between the Pathfinder Club and Community Services has become a beloved tradition. It has been a blessing, year after year, for everyone involved!
