- Gifts for Newborns. Every year from Christmas Eve through the Epiphany we collect gifts for children aged premie to 2. Gifts are distributed through Birthright and Project Gabriel. These gifts may be new or gently used clothes, baby bottles, toys, diapers and more. Car seats and any underclothing must be new. Gifts may be wrapped, but if so, must list age and sex appropriate for the wrapped item. To volunteer to take collection to Birthright, contact Shari Reilly.
- Food collections for MICA. We offer stewardship of the local community in many ways, including three annual food collections. During Lent, Advent and mid-summer, we have 4-6 week drives to bring in non-perishable food items.
- Operation Rice Bowl
- Diocesan Three in One Collection
- Other collections as needed for emergency relief or Appalachia Warehouse
