ALL ARE WELCOME HERE
Gardner Community Action Committee (Gardner C.A.C) Food Pantry
We support the Gardner CAC Food Pantry by donating and delivering several bags of groceries each week. Donations are accepted at the
St. Pauls. Information about the CAC can be found by visiting the Gardner CAC website.
Gardner Community Action Committee (Gardner C.A.C.) Grocery Delivery Service
One Saturday morning a month, dedicated volunteers spend 1 to 2 hours making
a huge difference in the lives of local people, by bringing groceries to them in
their homes. This service is coordinated by Julie Meehan at the C.A.C.
Last March marked 5 years of delivering groceries. Happy Anniversary to Us!
Time sure flies! A huge thank you to ALL who have helped over the last
four + years!!
Volunteers and helpers are always welcome. If you can carry a 15 lb. bag of
groceries up some stairs and would like to help out one Saturday,
please contact Sue Cringan at St. Pauls. Thank You!
Community Mission Backpack Project
Again this year, Summer of 2017, we have joined with other area churches for the Community Mission Backpack Project.
This project helps local school children by providing backpacks and school supplies for the upcoming school year. There is a collection
bin in the Narthex at St. Paul's for folks to drop off their donations.
Another of our projects at St. Paul's is collecting and donating our spare change to help young families. We ask parishioners and church attendees to contribute their spare change to help support the Diaper Pantry at our local Gardner Visiting Nurses Association.
The Diaper Pantry is a place where families can turn when they are struggling to purchase diapers for their babies and toddlers.
Our community outreach programs are designed to help those in need.
Our mission is to spiritually uplift our community, and work toward a greater good. Within our own community in Gardner, alongside our sister parish, St. John's of Athol, and together with the Episcopal Diocese of Western MA, we work to feed the hungry and clothe the poor. We help those seeking spiritual healing and enlightenment. Our outreach projects serve people of all races, creeds, and religions. We support our fellow man, and strive to serve as a guiding light.
