Adopt-a-Family Project

 Volunteer Grocery Packers

Please volunteer to help (feel free to just show up):
Wednesday, June 30th • 6:00 p.m. Volunteers pack grocery bags.
Thursday, July 1st • 8:00 a.m. Deliver groceries to recipients.

Our holiday (Christmas and 4th of July) food outreach to the local community is known as “Adopt-a-Family.”  Over 25 years ago this program was started to distribute groceries to needy families on Johns and Wadmalaw Island.  Today, over one hundred families receive six bags of shelf stable food, a ham and fresh produce.  Volunteers gather in the church to sort the food into bags one evening, and then deliver the bags the following morning.

This project is supported by the generous donations of parishioners and guests.  The fund drive begins a month prior to delivery with a suggested donation of $100, but any amount is appreciated.  If interested in becoming a team member or a volunteer, please contact Marie D’Ambrosio at 843-303-2207..

Due to the pandemic, we will not be able to deliver groceries.  Instead we will be distributing a gift card for a local grocery store to those who would normally receive bags of groceries.
