Atlanta City Council Member Andrea Boone Partners with Nexus Community Church for Thanksgiving Giveaway
ATLANTA — District 10 Council member Andrea Boone has partnered with Nexus Community Church Atlanta and Lead Pastor Horatious A. Harris to provide Thanksgiving meals for families in Southwest Atlanta this week. Residents will receive hand-delivered gift baskets fully stocked with fixings for a complete Thanksgiving dinner thanks to the benevolence of Atlanta residents.
“I come from a long line of public servants and the underlying part of that title is service. I applaud Pastor Harris and his members for their efforts to provide meals for our residents throughout this pandemic – whether distributing farm-fresh groceries with a pop-up community grocery or as we’re doing this week, delivering food baskets to families in need. The members of this ministry are true leaders and servants who walk the walk, not just talk the talk,” Boone said.
Nexus Community Church Lead Pastor and Atlanta native Horatious A. Harris is excited to support members of the community who may have been among the hardest hit by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
“This year has been especially hard for everyone, so it brings me joy to be able to offer some relief for residents who just need a little bit of hope. We are especially thankful to Council member Boone and her team for their willingness to join us in this effort,” Harris said.
The Thanksgiving baskets were made possible due to donations from Council member Boone’s office and members of the community. Baskets will be delivered from November 23-25 in Southwest Atlanta.
