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.  

Meals on Wheels
Several of our parishioners and friends at other churches participate each week in Meals on Wheels. At this time, there is a critical need for additional deliverers. If you would like more information about the vital outreach service to the community, please call Jerry Dodson, 757-599-4527.

Donate Books to the Sheriff’s Office
During this season of giving, the Newport News Sheriff’s Office (NNSO) asks you to please consider donating new or used books to the inmate library. The NNSO library is running low and the existing collection is becoming old and worn due to heavy use.  Books give incarcerated residents educational opportunities while offering inspiration and helping them prepare for re-entry.  Paperback books and magazines (self-help, business, religion, biographies, how-to, yoga and fitness, mystery and science fiction) are needed. The NNSO cannot accept hardcover books or any magazine containing nudity or that are of a sexually-explicit nature. To donate, please drop off the books at the City Jail Lobby, 224 26th Street. Donations are accepted from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Friday. While there is a critical need now, books can be donated year-round.
