Meeting Community Needs:
Hoboken Shelter: Current needs are: CASH donations, prepared sandwiches, latex gloves, bleach, breakfast cereal, coffee, and individual packets of sugar, salt, and pepper. There is also an Amazon wish list so that your items can be delivered directly to the shelter at 300 Bloomfield Street.
The Jubilee Center: The Jubilee Center completed its summer camp last week. The Jubilee Board of Trustees has held a series of community meetings and is having ongoing conversations with Jubilee families about next steps for our programs. We hope to have updates soon about the status of the building and our future plans.
In Jesus’s Name Charities: There is always a shortage of emergency food supplies. You may shop online for exactly what is most needed or you may send a check to them at 411 Clinton Street, Hoboken. Since the grounds of Our Lady of Grace are closed, there is currently no in-person drop-off.
Lunchtime Ministry at SMT: Many of the same people who utilize shelter services also come to St. Matthew Trinity’s Lunchtime Ministry, now providing take-away lunches and coffee. Open Monday-Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – noon, they are in need of ready-made sandwiches, pop-top canned soups, granola bars, and boxed juices. Monetary contributions may be made here, noting Lunchtime Ministry.
DJ’s Free Market redistributes God’s abundance by delivering Joy and much needed items from those who have much to those who have little. Our current drive is for old computers, monitors, keyboards and mice that will be refurbished by Computers4People and donated to people in need. Perhaps you or your child is upgrading to a new device for the new school year, and the old device still has some life left in it? You can read more about the drive in our newsletter here. Please contact us as firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements for drop off at All Saints Church, or you can arrange for Computers4People to pick up your items by accessing the application on their website. Contact Audrey Truschke if you have any questions email@example.com).
And for All Saints:
You can affirm the unity and vitality of the Church in this time of crisis:
- If you are a pledger (or a regular non-pledge giver), and you are in the habit of making gifts during services, you can make those contributions electronically here or by mail.
- If the current economic disruption threatens your income or livelihood, be assured that your pledge is not a debt, and that generosity can only be measured in terms of your personal circumstances. A decreased pledge does not necessarily equal decreased generosity.
- If you are in a position to increase your pledge, doing so in a time of crisis is a powerful sign of the mutual care to which all members of the Church are called.
- If All Saints is your church, and you have not made a 2020 pledge, please contact the church office for a pledge form. Especially in difficult times, your financial commitment to the mission of the Church is a sacramental sign that we are all in this together. Contact the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org)
with any questions about pledging or giving (or anything else).
