What Can I Do To Help?
Chesterfield Food Bank
The Chesterfield Food Bank opened a new site at Swift Creek Elementary and needs help in manning that site and others. Volunteers are asked to bring masks; gloves will be provided. If you are interested in helping, you can sign up HERE.
Food Bank Donations
St. Mark’s continues to support the Holy Comforter food bank in Richmond. We collect food outside the CLC doors from 12-4 every Sunday afternoon, and the food is delivered to Holy Comforter each week. The needs are great, and the donations are much appreciated. Their current request is for canned beans, dried beans, and canned vegetables but all packaged, unopened food is welcome.
Evergreen Elementary Food Needs
Evergreen Elementary has reached out to St. Mark’s asking for help for their many “at risk” students. During normal times, the school supplies two meals/day to many students and sends home weekend backpacks of food and emergency food supplies to many of their families. In the midst of this crisis, many of the families are facing unemployment and struggling, and Evergreen is getting requests to help with food.
Evergreen is asking for gift cards to be used for food AND gas (Walmart, Kroger, Wegmans, Food Lion, etc.) that the school can supply to families in need. If you are able to help, the cards can be purchased in person or online and mailed to Evergreen Elementary at 1701 Evergreen East Parkway, Midlothian, VA 23114. You may also send cards electronically (with the exception of Food Lion). Those can be sent to Evergreen’s Assistant Principal, Diane Siegel at Diane_Siegel@ccpsnet.net. Evergreen counselors and their social worker will send the cards directly to the families in need. Thank you to all that have already sent gift cards and Evergreen is so appreciative of the support from the St. Mark’s community.
