Current + Upcoming Opportunities
Diaper Drive for Little Hands
From now through the end of summer, we will be hosting a drive for Little Hands. Little Hands is an organization started by a local mom in 2019 to "make sure children from birth to 3 years old have the essentials to thrive from “Day 1.” To read more about them, click here. We will be collecting new and gently used children's board books and infant toys (0-6 months only), baby wash or lotion (13 oz + larger), and diapers and wipes (all sizes including pull ups). Look for boxes in the cloister hallway to leave your donations. You can email the church office with any questions.
Saturday Lunch Ministry
You may remember the Urban Feeding Ministry from before COVID. We have since revamped this rewarding ministry and we are excited to announce we will be continuing this for 2022 and renaming it the Saturday Lunch Ministry. We will be in charge of packing lunches on months with a 5th Saturday. If you are interested in helping with future events, please email Winston to sign up or with questions. The next dates will be: July 30 and October 29, 2022.
Red Cross Blood Drives - Held Throughout the Year
Stay up to date with the latest events by subscribing to our newsletter or liking us on Facebook. We hold Blood Drives in our Parish Hall 4-5 times per year. Next Blood Drive is Sunday, December 4, 2022 8:00am-1:00pm.
Welborne United Methodist Food Pantry
We have partnered with the Welborne Church Community Food Pantry to help our
local community during these difficult times. Their mission is "to serve those who are
hungry in the West End of Richmond, feeding bodies and feeding hearts by loving our
neighbor." We are collecting donations for their food pantry at All Saints. Canned food,
rice, pasta, peanut butter, cereals, mac and cheese, and individually wrapped snacks
can be left in the green shed by our playground. Please no glass containers of any kind.
If you’re looking to volunteer, the Food Pantry needs you!
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All Saints Community Garden
Check out the All Saints community Garden, on the east end of the parking lot. We
have raised beds perfect for growing a variety of vegetables. Our preschool uses a
portion of the garden to help the children learn about how food is grown and where it
comes from. The farm fresh bounty will be given to help feed the needy in our
community. We are looking for individuals or groups to help keep our garden clean
and productive. If interested in helping even for an hour or two, please sign up here.
We will contact our volunteers on an as needed basis for assistance.
Rise Against Hunger
We host an annual meal packaging event for Rise Against Hunger, an
international hunger relief organization that distributes food and
life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable, mobilizing the necessary
resources to end hunger by 2030. 815 million people across the world do not
receive enough nutrition to lead an active, healthy lifestyle. All Saints hosts a
family-friendly meal packaging event each fall. Look out for information
about this event in our publications.
Typically held in the Fall and the Spring, we hold two workdays to tackle indoor and outdoor projects. This is a great volunteer event for all ages. Jobs range from weeding in the garden to dusting and cleaning the pews in the church. Look out for these events in our weekly newsletter.
