Fire Recovery

October 10, 2020 (revised)

Dear Family and Friends of St. Mark's:

More than a month following the devistating fires that decimated the cities of Phoenix and Talent as well as causing sporadic damage in other areas, the headlines and fires have receded, but the need continues. Our own Food Pantry continues to provide help and hope to those who are experiencing hunger, and we invite your contribution to that effort by clicking here and selecting "Food Pantry" as the designated recipient of your gift. Additionally, the following agencies continue to minister to the needs of our community and deserve your ongoing financial support:

  • Family Nurturing Center
    The FNC is in contact with families in need, many of whom are current clients.
  • Maslow Project
    Specializing in addressing the needs of homeless children and teenagers, Maslow Project is actively working with newly homless kids, teens, and families.
  • Rogue Retreat
    Through its Temporary Urban Campground, Kelly Shelter, Hope Village, Thrift Shop, and other initiatives, Rogue Retreat has been actively assiting in getting homeless individuals into both temporary and long-term housing. The need has never been greater.
  • St. Vincent de Paul
    A well-regarded social service agency currently providing parking-lot camping, laundry and shower facilities, and bagged lunches as well as ongoing social services.

All of the above are solid, long-standing agencies who can put your donations to use where they are most needed. If you would like to give directly to St. Mark's, click here and we will pass your donation along to those who need it.

If you are in urgent need, please contact one of the above agencies first. If they are unable to meet your need, contact our church office at (541) 773-3111 or via email our Rector by clicking here and we will do our best to assist you.

Please continue to check back to find out about opportunities for service and support and, of course, donations are always welcome.

Blessings,

-- Tom+
