LWC Mosaic Campus Ministry Collecting Food for J.O.Y. Ministries, Thanksgiving Boxes


By LWC public relations intern and communication junior Chloe Thomas

COLUMBIA, KY. -- In preparation for the approaching Thanksgiving holiday, Lindsey Wilson College Mosaic Campus Ministries is partnering with area churches for a food drive. 

From now until November 22, non-perishable foods can be dropped off to Instructor of Religion and LWC Chaplain Ben Martin in the basement of the John B. Begley Chapel, 302 Lindsey Wilson Street. This is the second year LWC has helped to collect Thanksgiving-related food for area families. 

“Mosaic Campus Ministry collected over 150 pounds of food during last year’s November food drive,” said Martin. “LWC’s campus and community always respond to the call anytime they are asked for assistance. We hope our contributions will reach even more families this year.” 

J.O.Y. Ministries will use the items collected to provide Thanksgiving food boxes to food-insecure individuals and families in the Columbia/Adair County Community. 

The following items are in greatest need: stuffing mix/Stove Top, yams, potatoes, corn, green beans, mac and cheese, boxed desserts, soups, vegetables, rice, tuna, and canned pastas.

For more information about the J.O.Y. Ministries Thanksgiving food drive, please contact Ben Martin at martinb@lindsey.edu or call 270-849-5918.
