With Thanksgiving a little over a month away, Living Water Ministries is seeking to provide its clients with a great
Thanksgiving meal through a Bag of Blessing.
Living Water has adjusted the contents of the bag to make it as affordable as ever, and still give its clients a

Churches, organizations, Sunday Schools, schools, and the public are asked to be a part of this project.
