Advent Giving Tree!

St. Mark’s Annual Giving Tree

Every year St. Mark’s creates a Giving Tree during Advent to encourage donations to two organizations as an extension of the focus of the outreach commission on housing and homelessness. This year the Outreach Commission has again selected Project WeHOPE and the CIC Jail ministry as our designated recipients. Given the constraints resulting from COVID-19, rather than suggesting specific items for you to purchase, we are asking for monetary gifts on behalf of these organizations, which they can use to purchase the items they need. Please take a tag from the tree in the narthex and either bring a check to place in the giving tree box located the tree, donate via Tithly in the button below or mail a check to St. Mark’s and specify in the memo line which organization you wish to support (CIC or We Hope).  Thank you for supporting these critical organizations, especially as they serve communities in need during these challenging times.
