August Outreach Drive

Home August Outreach Drive

With apologies to Dionne Warwick, we are asking St. Paul’s to keep smiling and keep shining this August as we support those in need in the city of Alexandria with donations of personal care and school supplies and monetary donations to the Lazarus Ministry.

We are excited to announce that thanks to an anonymous donor, during the month of August all donations will be matched up to $5,000. As many of our neighbors in the city of Alexandria struggle with rent and utility bills due to COVID-19, the voice mailbox of the Lazarus Ministry overflows each day with calls for assistance. We are so grateful for this gift and for this opportunity to raise much-needed funds for the Lazarus Ministry.

Social workers in the ACPS school system continue to work with and support students and families in need while schools are closed for in-person instruction. Personal care items and school supplies are needed now more than ever. During August we will be collecting items to distribute to families in need.

Click here to see the supply list. Supplies can be dropped off at the Duke Street door of St. Paul’s on Wednesdays, starting August 12th , from 12 to 4 pm and Saturdays, starting August 15th , from 9 am to 1 pm.
