Sunday, October 21 – Giving Sunday

Once a month, we encourage members to bring food items for donation to the Scarborough Food Pantry.

St. Elizabeth’s Jubilee Center

St. Nick’s next turn at the Jubilee Center at St. Luke’s Cathedral is Tuesday, October 23.  FMI see Terry Foster.

 

As part of our support for the Essentials/ St Elizabeth’s Pantry, St Nicholas usually makes a cash donation each year, in addition to the items we collect.  We have a generous donation of $100, as a challenge match for other donors.  Consider this an invitation:  No Pressure.  But if you believe in the Ministry of Essentials Pantry–helping provide essential non-food items to those in need (largely an immigrant population in Portland) —YOU are invited to make a financial contribution to this worthy cause.  Watch for the designated Donation Box on the next 3 Sundays, and thank you in advance for your generosity.
