Our History

As far back as anyone can remember, First Baptist Church of Glenarden (FBCG) has always been committed to serving the community, including providing traditional Thanksgiving baskets to the less fortunate each year.

In 2013, we revamped our Thanksgiving Basket Giveaway program to increase the number of people we served and to improve the quality of our serve. We increased the number of bags of food to 4,500 and cut down the wait time from 1-2 hours to less than 15 minutes. We also improved the efficiency of the process to register and receive the food on distribution day. This service to the community is a church-wide event—a collaboration with every department. As such, we eliminated long lines, and put smiles on our guests’ faces. 

Praise our God that we met spiritual, temporal and physical needs. We are EXCITED about what God will do during the FBCG Thanksgiving Basket Giveaway!
