Adopt-a-Family Project

 Volunteer Grocery Packers

Please volunteer to help (feel free to just show up):

Tuesday, December 13th at 9 a.m. —  Cases of groceries are dropped off and need opening

Thursday, December 15th at 8 a.m. — Load vehicles and deliver groceries to recipients

Our Christmas and 4th of July holiday 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, close to three hundred families receive five 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.

Please sign up to volunteer in the Narthex of the church beginning the second weekend of November.
