Holiday Baskets

The people of Maple have generous hearts. Therefore, each fall, we here at Maple UMC work with Santa’s Helper in Battle Creek to distribute Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday baskets.  These baskets provide food and gifts for families in need. After receiving the family names from Santa’s Helper, Maple volunteers begin gathering favorite holiday food items to make good Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for the family.

  • Frozen Turkey or Fresh Ham
  • A bag of potatoes
  • A gallon of milk
  • Butter
  • A dozen eggs
  • Prepared dressing
  • Canned Vegetables
  • Canned Cranberry sauce or fruit
  • Dessert mix
  • Dinner Rolls
  • Cereal
One Family's Holiday Basket for 2020
These are items that were donated by people of Maple for one holiday basket.

In addition, for the Christmas holiday baskets, we provide another gift for each family member that was requested at the time of registration. Occasionally, we are able to include special hand-made gifts. We want our families to know they are special.

Registration for Santa’s Helper begins October 1. Darlene Williams has run the program for over 40 years in space provided by First United Methodist Church. Contact her at 269/963-5567 to sign up to receive or distribute!
