Food Pantry: The Outreach ministry is responsible for laundry detergent to be given to the guests at the One Family monthly breakfasts. Fellow churches in our deanery provide other items also not covered by the SNAP program such as paper towels, toilet paper, some personal items, etc. Therefore, the second Sunday of each month has been designated “Second Sunday, Soap Sunday” at St. Mark’s. Instead of a food item, we are asking for a contribution of a bottle of detergent (purchased from the Dollar Store for $1). Non perishable food item collection for the Foxboro Food Pantry will continue to be held on the remaining Sundays of each month (1, 3,4 and sometimes 5). Parishioners have done a great job of providing for our neighbors with food needs and the Pantry has expressed its deep appreciation for our contributions. Suggestions will continue to be in each Sunday’s order of service booklet. The need is present all year long and if each family were to bring just one item each Sunday, we’d increase our contributions significantly. Thank you for your help!
New Trading Post: The New Trading Post board continues to be committed to creating a thriving and enjoyable shopping experience. In addition, we strive to identify local organizations and individuals who can benefit from our unsold merchandise. Throughout the year, we see our mission being realized in the store through interactions with our customers and consignors as well as through donations to the community. Experiencing the NTP mission being carried out beyond the storefront demonstrates the importance of our work and makes our continued efforts so rewarding. If you would like to be a part of this great work, please talk with one of our board members. We welcome your involvement in 2020.
Foxboro Community Dinner: We are looking for donations of $10 gift cards to Stop and Shop and Cumberland Farms for the adults. If you are able to donate, these can be left in the basket.
