St Andrew Presbyterian Church, Marin City Fundraiser – Black Lives Matter Mural on T-Shirts & Bags

St Andrew has a beautiful Black Lives Matter mural that was created by folks who participated in a BLM march in Marin City. You can buy a t-shirt or tote bag print of the mural here https://standrewpopupstore.itemorder.com/sale

Loving Our Neighbors – The Mission Committee
Thank you to the Congregation for Supporting 2020 PDA Trip
Special announcement about disbursement of funds
Do you remember the wonderful Crab Feed last February? The Mission Committee expresses deep gratitude to the entire congregation for your contributions in support of our 2020 Presbyterian Disaster Assistance mission trip. Fifteen of us were going to Omaha, NE to help rebuild homes damaged in the 2019 Nebraska-Iowa floods. This trip was to take place this past April. However, it had to be canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
We want to honor your wishes by supporting agencies doing disaster relief. The money raised at the February 2020 Crab Feed plus other donations will be distributed as follows.
$1,191 will go to each of the following agencies:
- Omaha Rapid Response (Nebraska). This agency continues the house rebuilding work in Omaha that we would have participated in on our PDA trip.
- Presbyterian Disaster Assistance to help communities harmed by hurricanes floods and fires.
- Red Cross (California) for fire victims.
- Canal Alliance (San Rafael) to help keep people in the canal area with emergency assistance in housing, food, job training, etc.
- Marin Interfaith Street Chaplaincy to support ongoing services, suppers and chaplaincy costs.
- $500 will be given to the First Congregational Church, Sonoma (Rev. Curran Reichert) for gift cards for local emergency assistance.
Special Request from the Mission Committee –
Paper Grocery Bags Needed
The Mission Committee is starting to plan for the Thanksgiving collection of food for Ritter Center. We will be collecting and packing 50 bags of non-perishable food for a Thanksgiving meal for families. We'll have more specific information in a few weeks, but we know now that we need paper bags -- the large, sturdy ones with handles. Please save any that you have or can gather. It will save us having to buy any. We will let you know when to bring them to church or you can request someone to pick them up from you. Thanks!
