Once every four months, our parish purchases food and cooks a hot lunch for approximately one hundred men at the Men’s Rescue Mission in Charlotte.
Each month we donate approximately 200-300lbs of canned goods for the local Loaves and Fishes Donation Program.
During the month of August we collect backpacks and fill them with school supplies and then donate them to the local school system.
Every November the Salvation Army in Charlotte asks for donations of gifts for families in need. Parish families “adopt” local angels, we purchase gifts for the children.
Throughout the year we collect diapers, baby formula, gently used baby toys, board books, and other baby items for distribution to the local home for single teen mothers.
In 2014 our parish started a new construction ministry. In June 2014 we sent five men to Kenosha, WI to build a one hundred foot handicap ramp for St. Nicholas Orthodox Parish. Our parish pays for our food and travel and donate we donate the labor. The host parish pays for building supplies and provides housing.
