Due to an overwhelming response from people across the Ohio Valley, all Thanksgiving dinner boxes The Experience Church has provided are accounted for.

This comes even after additional boxes were added for families in need.


One local church is providing free Thanksgiving dinners to those in need.

The Experience Church in St. Clairsville, Ohio, wants to help any family in the Ohio Valley that is experiencing hardship.

Families will receive a turkey, a five-pound bag of potatoes, a box of stuffing, two jars of
gravy, two cans of corn, two cans of green beans, rolls, margarine, cranberry sauce,
pumpkin pie, and whipped cream.

Kayla Dixon, Director of Outreach at The Experience Church, said this is so much more
than giving away a box of food.

“Our hope is that through providing a family with a box full of Thanksgiving dinner
essentials, we are giving them a chance at quality time with each other, good
conversations around a table, and that they know and understand that Jesus sees them
and meets them right where they are. Because without Him, none of this is possible,”
Dixon said.

As there are many families you are in need of assistance, the church is asking for one
registration per family so that they can help as many families as possible.

You do not need to attend The Experience Church to receive the free meal.

You also have the opportunity to donate to this event by going to the Give Tab on The Experience Church website.

Families must be able to pick up their meals on Saturday, November 18, at The Experience.
Church from 9 am and 10 am.
