In case you or someone you know is in need this Thanksgiving … we wanted to mention once more that the annual Eastridge Church 500-turkey giveaway is tomorrow morning, starting at 9 am, at the church (39th and Oregon, across from West Seattle Bowl). They don’t require any proof of need or ID – just show up and they’ll give you a turkey and bag of groceries, as long as the supply lasts.

  2. Is this church an Assembly of God church? Are they born again Christians?

  3. Don’t know and it doesn’t matter in this act of charity – they’re giving away 500 turkeys, no proselytizing and no prequalification and no strings attached, as they have done for years (we have covered this each of the past few years). If you’re curious about their belief/s, I’d imagine there’s information on their website, which is at http://www.eastridgetoday.com (should be hotlinked in the story, as we do with most institutions, secular, religious, business, school, whatever, about which we write)

  4. We went around 10:30 and they were out. People were waiting outside since 4 AM. The people we met were incredibly friendly and told us about how the turkey drop went, without any mention of religion. I am thankful to have them in our community. :)
