SYRIAN CHRISTIAN RELIEF

As the Syrian crisis continues with little change, we continue to accept donations to do what we can to help ease the suffering there. Checks may be written to “St. Michael’s” with the note “Syrian Relief.” The following link to a CBS 60 Minutes program will offer some deeper understanding of what is transpiring:

CALEB’S CUPBOARD

Caleb’s Cupboard is the large, tan plastic box at the front entrance to our church which is intended to be a collection bin in which we may leave canned goods and other non-perishable items for people in need.

Let us regularly fill it to the brim!

International Orthodox Christian Charities - Unique and Effective!

 The assistance is unique. IOCC does not just give aid, but provides the means for people to continue the help themselves. For example, IOCC gives plows and seeds so that a farmer can keep on providing for his family.

 

· IOCC is helping everywhere – from rebuilding hurricane damages homes in the Southwest U.S to Haiti, many places in Africa, Europe and the Middle East.

 

· 93 Cents ($0.93) of every dollar gets used, because of volunteers

 

· Each donated dollar is multiplied 7 times through matching funds from many sources

 

· All Orthodox jurisdictions in the U.S. are involved in the work of IOCC.

 

For more information on IOCC, see Fr. John or Pete Papas.
