Hunger Sunday

Thank you, again, for your generosity this Thanksgiving to bring in food and donations to feed the poor in our midst. St. Mary’s collected nearly 200 filled grocery bags of food for Samaritan, Doorways, Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing and Arling Terrace View, Arlington Food Assistance Center and OAR.

If feeding the hungry is a ministry that speaks to you, there are ways to volunteer your time throughout the year. Pick up individual brochures at church, or download our Sharing Our Harvest article to learn how you can volunteer to help.

At the Nov. 19th  Adult Forum we heard from Daryl Wright of So Others Might Eat (SOME), Ned Leonard, who serves as St. Mary’s Outreach Coordinator, and the Va Episocal Region III leader for Stop Hunger Now, Sarah Hurst of Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network (A-SPAN), Charles Meng of Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), and Donice Gilliland of St. Mary’s Outreach Ministry Chairperson.
