NOTE to congregations:  Our 2020 Grant Cycle is about to close.

 

Dear Friends,

        Episcopal Community Services has been in the forefront of helping the Diocese of Northern California transform communities. In every Deanery there are congregations that are quietly doing their part to improve life for its local area. It was your donation toward the seed money that helped many of those ministries start up and they now continue in spite of Covid-19!

        Incarnation in Santa Rosa no longer provides a hot breakfast, but a brown bag lunch and coffee to go. It is their intention in the future to resume the hot breakfast, but at this point they are not allowed to have the meal, and even when they might be allowed to, the social distancing requirements may prove to be too challenging, Epiphany in Vacaville continues to provide lunch on Tuesday and Dinner on Friday. The meals are provided at the kitchen door in ‘to go’ bags. The big complaint of the diners is that there is no place to chat with their friends. St. Francis in Willetts also has gone back to providing a meal to go as well. Ministry continues thanks to your generosity.

        St. James in Yuba City announced on Facebook that their garden continues to provide huge cartloads of vegetables to the food banks at St Andrew Presbyterian and St Isadore Catholic church. They were able to give them tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, eggplant, melons, and delicious corn.

        Thank you to all the volunteers who give their time and energy to transform communities.

        The 2020 Grant Cycle is about to close. We hope to be giving away in excess of $27,000. Please be generous when you receive our newsletter or during the Bishop’s Appeal. There will be many, many needs when this pandemic eases off. ECS wants to be able to help as many programs as possible in 2021.

        Stay safe. Be well.

        Cookie Clark, President
