For many years, St. Mark’s parishioners have shared their abundance with our neighbors in need through Everyone Home DC, formerly Capitol Hill Group Ministry. Last year, we took more than 40 baskets of Thanksgiving groceries from St. Mark’s to Shirley’s Place the Sunday before Thanksgiving. This year, things are different, but our neighbors still need help preparing for Thanksgiving.

To minimize the Covid risk to everyone, Everyone Home DC is asking us to donate money so they can distribute grocery gift cards to their clients. Their goal is to distribute a gift card to each family they work with, which means they need 150 $50 gift cards by November 12.

Please go to this link to donate from your abundance toward this need. If you would prefer to mail a check, please make it out to Everyone Home DC and mail it to 415 2nd St NE, 3rd Floor, Washington, DC 20002.

If $50 is too much, donate what you feel comfortable with. Sharing with our neighbors is a way we show gratitude for what we have. If you have questions, please contact Susan Sedgewick.
