Give Thanks 2021

This Thanksgiving season, the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship of Alabama is excited to once again host an event that celebrates a time to come together with loved ones and show appreciation. Dr. Albert Schweitzer once said, “The greatest thing is to give thanks for everything. He who has learned this knows what it means to live. He has penetrated the whole mystery of life: giving thanks for everything.”

By purchasing a Give Thanks package, you’ll support the work of ASF of Alabama as we mobilize graduate students to address health disparities and the social determinants of health.

Packages will include a sweet potato pie, handmade piece of pottery for serving, and conversation starters for encouraging discussion about what we are thankful for. The price includes delivery within a 15 mile radius of Birmingham.

Participants will also support local, small businesses during this important time. We appreciate the partnership with JaWanda’s Sweet Potato Pies, a family-owned bakery in Birmingham, Mudtown Pottery, a ceramics studio making handmade pottery in Cahaba Heights, and Non-Fiction Coffee an ethically-sourced coffee company roasting beans in Pelham.

Participants can choose whether to get the:

-original or gluten-free pie (valued at $18);

-pottery pie plate (9″) or a mug (valued at $26 and $23, respectively);

-and all will receive an 8oz. bag of ground coffee, as well (valued at $8).

The order form also allows people to indicate which day and time frame will be best for delivery. Want to order a package for someone else? No problem! Simply add the recipient’s name and address on the order form and we’ll deliver to him/her. They make great gifts on behalf of a company, as your clients or employees will see that you care for them and support the community.

Each package costs $100; the retail value of packages is $49 or $52, which means that each package purchased will include a $51 or $48 donation to ASF, and donors will receive a tax-donation receipt. Order below by November 7th, or before packages run out. Quantities are limited, so order soon so you don’t miss out!
