Who: Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church

What: Greater Community | Turkey & Trimmings Give-A-Way

When: Tuesday, November 20th

Where: The Joy Theater • 1200 Canal Street New Orleans, LA 70113

Time: 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

New Orleans, LA - Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church and Winn Dixie have partnered to supply hundreds of needy New Orleans families with a greater Thanksgiving Tuesday, November 20th on Canal Street at the Joy Theater, by providing them with a turkey, non-perishable trimmings and a gift card, just in time for the holiday season!

Greater St. Stephen has presented the Greater Community | Turkey & Trimmings Give-A-Way annually at its now defunct uptown location for the past 30+ years. The give-a-way grew to provide Thanksgiving dinner for two hundred and fifty families. With the help of Winn-Dixie, this year's Turkey & Trimmings Give-A-Way aims to provide the same for up to five hundred families.

"Winn-Dixie has been supporting the civic and charitable efforts of our team members and store guest since 1925. Being a good corporate citizen and a good neighbor in the communities we serve has been a part of the Winn-Dixie philosophy and remains a fundamental part of the way we do business. We are proud to support the Greater Community | Turkey & Trimmings Give-A-Way hosted by Greater St. Stephen because it truly makes a positive impact in our community." said Beth Goldenberg, Winn Dixie's Manager of Neighborhood Involvement.

Pastor Debra B. Morton said, "I am so excited about this year's ‘Greater Community | Turkey & Trimmings Give-a-Way! Not only are we thrilled to be at the renowned Joy Theater every Sunday for Worship but are truly grateful to have Winn Dixie partner with our wonderful congregation to serve the needy in that area! This is such a positive example of God's love extending beyond church walls to connect with others in the community who care! In this season, it is a warm feeling to know that we are rebuilding more than physical buildings, but people's lives. Happy Thanksgiving to All! "

For more than 70 years, Greater St. Stephen has been a catalyst for change and spiritual advancement not only in New Orleans, LA but also in the world. Over the decades, Greater St. Stephen under its visionaries, Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr. and Dr. Debra B. Morton, has been known as one of the largest Pentecostal congregation in Louisiana.
