Holiday Meal-Packing


'Tis the season for the spirit of giving! Join New Memphis in spreading cheer by packing holiday boxes for the community in need. New Memphis is partnering with Neighborhood Christian Center in providing Christmas Food Baskets to 10,000 local families. Each basket will be filled assembly-style with enough food to feed a family of four for up to four days.

RSVP is required--for a little extra holiday treat--and a merry & bright attitude is encouraged.

Extra Event Details:

What to Bring: This is a warehouse environment; please feel free to bring masks and warm clothing. If you want to spread a little extra cheer, you may also bring an unwrapped toy to donate to Neighborhood Christian Center's Annual Toy Giveaway. Toys should be valued at a minimum of $10 for a child aged 0-12.

What to Leave at Home: We ask that you do not bring any box cutters or knives to assist with opening packages. This should be done by NCC staff ONLY. Please also leave any valuables at home, as there is nowhere to lock items in the warehouse.

When You Arrive: Upon entering, you must stop at the Check In/Registration table. Look for the New Memphis Sign-In to check in and receive your extra treat! You will then be directed to the Orientation Station.
