|At this year's Thanksgiving day community meal|
you're participating in Giving Tuesday today, please consider making a
contribution to the work here at Guardian Angel. We are a Christian
community, dedicated to justice, stewardship and peace, and grounded in
scripture, prayer and worship in the Episcopal tradition. We are a
welcoming, respectful and safe place for everyone, and we are committed,
active neighbors in Remington.
Our biggest outreach
ministry is the Food Pantry, which provides 2-3 full bags of groceries
to around 70 people per week. It also provides a hot breakfast before
the distribution on Wednesday mornings. We also have community meals,
host festivals, do a yearly backpack giveaway and a Christmas toy
distribution, and host or run many other programs.
vestry, clergy, and volunteers at the Church of the Guardian
Angel would like to express our thanks to Nancy Reed & Barb Fisher
for the generous donation they arranged to support the ongoing expenses
at the Food Pantry. Their gift will pay for nearly four months of food
purchases. We are also grateful for the generous donation given in
memory of Annie Gardner, who helped found the Food Pantry, by Long &
Foster's Timonium group.
this point, along with some anonymous donors, we have received around
$6,000 toward the 2020 food purchases for the Food Pantry. We'd like to
raise at least $6,000 more, which would cover the costs for the entire
$6 pays for one person's Food Pantry bags for a week. $30 could buy a
big supply of warm socks to distribute to the homeless this winter. $150
could buy a new, energy efficient window for the Parish house to
replace the beaten-up, leaky aluminum ones; another $150 would pay for a
professional installation (22 are ready for replacement). $1,200 pays
for an entire month of Food Pantry food purchases. $3,100 could replace
the courtyard door to the Thrift Shop. $8,000 could pay for the
installation of efficient and modern heating and air conditioning in the
Thrift Shop. $10,000 could pay for efficient air conditioning and
supplemental heating in the Sanctuary. You may have other ideas; we'd
love to hear them.
We have special funds for the food pantry ongoing costs (https://paypal.me/pools/c/804oHo0BPI) and for recovery/restoration from our recent sewage flood (https://paypal.me/pools/c/8jXr3OeJRx). You can also make a donation to the general fund here (paypal.me/CGABaltimore), feel free to specify what project or effort you'd like the funds to go toward.
you'd like to help by volunteering, please contact us or come by on a
Tuesday morning between 9am and noon to speak with the leaders there.
Tuesday is when we do setup for the Wednesday morning distribution.
