Saint Mark’s Community Engagement Christmas Wish List 2019

Consider giving generously to our Saint Mark’s Mission Partners who engage in justice all year ‘round!

Episcopal Relief and Development ‘Gift of Life’ Campaign
Give people worldwide the chance to transform their lives in lasting ways by sponsoring diverse gifts such as livestock, water filtration systems and wells, maternal and newborn health programs, and disaster relief kits. All gifts will be matched through 12/31! Donate at: https://support.episcopalrelief.org/gifts

Support Align Minneapolis and Help Those Experiencing Homelessness
Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness (DCEH) is now Align Minneapolis! The new name and brand reflect the joint efforts of people with a lived experience of homelessness and Minneapolis member congregations, such as Saint Mark’s, working together to address homelessness. Our goal is for everyone to have access to safe, decent, stable, and affordable housing. Donate to support our efforts such as the Emergency Rental Assistance Program: https://www.alignmpls.org/give
