Current Outreach Projects

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

Donating stimulus checks
$1400 stimulus checks are now arriving in people’s mailboxes and checking accounts. John and I received ours the other day. Once again, we find ourselves in the position of not needing this extra money while knowing that there are many, many people who do need financial help right now.  John and I will be donating our checks—he to a charity; and I to some individuals in need.  If you are able, we encourage you to join us in this effort. Perhaps you have a friend or family member who could use help covering basic necessities; or you’d like to support a local charity. If you are interested in providing extra funds directly to a person or family in need, just let me know. Through my discretionary fund and/or through THRIVE Peninsula, I can help to make that happen.  With God’s help, may we be good stewards of all that we receive.
Blessings, Anne+

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.
