Hello St. Clarians,
The current Pandemic has particularly impacted those in our community already marginalized by society, the homeless and undocumented immigrants. These populations face even greater risks of infection and increased needs for food, safe socially-distant shelter and access to sanitation facilities.
The Outreach Committee has been exploring what is needed locally to provide assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have identified three organizations below, who are working in these communities to provide relief and assistance. Please click here to see the descriptions of each organization’s efforts.
- The Shelter Association of Washtenaw County
- The Washtenaw Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Rights
- The ministries for the homeless at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Detroit
If you wish to donate to any or all of these causes, we ask that you send your donation to St. Clare’s so that our treasurers can document the level of support and distribute the monies to the different organizations as St. Clare’s Outreach. Please identify on St. Clare’s e-giving website or on the check memo line which organization you wish your gift sent to. You can find details about giving online or via text at www.saintclareschurch.org/give.
We appreciate your continued generosity in taking care of our neighbors in need here in Southeast Michigan.
The Outreach Committee
