St. Andrew’s to host homeless families

In partnership with Temple Beth El, St. Andrew’s will host families from the Family Housing Network downstairs in Puddicombe Hall August 4-August 11.

We will be extending our hospitality to at least three families and maybe as many as five, and we will share dinner each evening and provide items for a simple breakfast.If you can help out by providing food or assistance, please contact the Church Office. While our families are with us, we also ask that everyone stay out of Puddicombe Hall and the kitchen area so that they can have some privacy. Thank you for your consideration!

Jackson St. Food Bank to serve the hungry this week

The Jackson St. Food Bank will be opening its doors today, Wednesday, May 30, at 5:00 PM to community families.

Volunteers from the St. Andrew’s community are cordially welcome to join the Food Bank team in the morning from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM (PLEASE NOTE THE LATER TIME!) to help set up in Puddicombe Hall and in the afternoon from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM to help serve our community guests.

We especially need volunteers for the 6:00-7:00 PM close-up and clean-up phase. Many hands make light work! God bless you!
