Thanksgiving Help Needed

Please help provide Thanksgiving dinner for local families in need! Items will be distributed from Sonshine Haven during Thanksgiving week November 20-22.

Turkeys, fresh produce, and grocery store gift cards ( to buy items we need) are just a few of the items we can use for completing a Thanksgiving dinner. For see list below.

If your bible study, home group or family wants to donate a whole dinner in a box you can get creative and include sparkling cider, napkins or candles to make the meal extra special.

Items for each box:

  • Turkey
  • Stuffing
  • Potatoes
  • Yams/Sweet potatoes
  • Vegetables (Green bean casserole ingredients)
  • Gravy (Jars, cans or packets)
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Rolls
  • Butter
  • Olives
  • Onions, celery
  • Dessert (Pies, cake mixes, cookies)

We can also use premade meals from local grocery stores for the family to pick up on Thanksgiving and monetary donations of any amount for us to purchase the items we need!

To donate please email us at or call 619-440-1221

Pray For Ms Mari!

Miss Mari, founder & director of Sonshine Haven, Sonshine Clubs, Higher Ground Clubs, Mom’s Night Out, Life Skills, Cinderella Day…needs your prayers today, right now…she had surgery this morning but then her lung collapsed. Dr. is trying to diagnose why and what to do for her. She’s in pain and on oxygen. Mari has been there for us, our children, our moms, our schools…let’s lift her up now in a community of prayers.
