Here are some of the ways you can get involved in St. Andrew's outreach right now.

Help those fleeing war in Ukraine
As violence escalates in Ukraine, over one million people have already fled the country — and the borders are flooded with many more people desperate to leave. Almost all of them are women and children who have had to seek safety on their own, leaving their husbands, fathers, brothers, and sons behind. Episcopal Relief & Development (ERD) is working with Anglican agencies and other partners to provide humanitarian assistance and urgently needs help. Your emergency gift to ERD will support our immediate response, providing cash, blankets, hygiene supplies, and other needs as this crisis unfolds. ERD and their partners are currently on the ground in the border areas of Poland, Hungary, and Romania, helping those who have been displaced.
You can donate online here or you may make a check payable to St. Andrew's with "ERD" on the memo line.

Blood drive coordinator needed
Anne Fowler, who has been our blood drive coordinator for many years, would like to step down and we are looking for a new volunteer to take over this ministry. St Andrew's has traditionally hosted the Hilton Area Churches' Blood Drive annually on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. If you are interested in volunteering, please either contact Anne at 596-5543 or Matt Deller at 812-9852. Thank you, Anne, for organizing our efforts year after year!

Let’s fill up St. Nicholas Chapel: Feed my lambs, tend my sheep.
 In his sermon several weeks ago, Marc said how great it would be if every parishioner would buy at least one extra canned or boxed food item each time you go shopping and bring it to church each Sunday – not just our parishioners, but those of the Hilton churches, and not just the Hilton churches but all of the Newport News churches – as a way of feeding those in need. We are going to start by inviting the Hilton churches to join us (Hilton Presbyterian is already on board) in filling up St. Nicholas Chapel. Canned vegetables, soups, fruits, meats, and pastas; boxes of cereal, pastas, and crackers; and jars of peanut butter and jelly are always needed. Specific needs are: canned tomato sauce, carrots, peas, baked beans, pork & beans, fruit; packages of pudding; and boxed or packages of mashed potatoes. As the donations begin to grow, we will make them available to THRIVE Peninsula and other outreach organizations that have food pantries.
