During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Guild of St. Margaret's Soup Kitchen's work has been all the more essential. The program has seen a huge increase in the number of community members experiencing food insecurity and have worked hard to meet the rising need.

Volunteers needed to help bring their monthly food delivery into the building. The Food Bank truck comes to the pantry on the first Thursday of every month, volunteers will help unload the truck and carry the food up 1-2 flights of stairs to its storage area.

Mission Statement

EPISCOPAL CHARITIES: AN OVERVIEW The mission of Episcopal Charities embraces a wide range of activities that promote and support the community service programs operated and supported by Episcopal congregations in the Episcopal Diocese of New York. Episcopal Charities provides three basic services: Grantmaking, Educational Development, and Fund Development, representing a coordinated approach to support for congregations that wish to operate or sponsor programs serving people in their communities.

Description

GRANTMAKING The Episcopal Charities grants program includes two annual cycles: Grants for Basic Human Needs, providing support for a wide range of programs, and the Keystone Partnership for Youth, targeting funds for programs serving young people. The recipients of program funds are listed elsewhere, as are the guidelines for applying for grant funds EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT Each year Episcopal Charities offers a range of educational and training opportunities to all outreach programs in the Diocese, whether or not they receive an Episcopal Charities grant. These opportunities take advantage of two resources; the accumulated wisdom and experience of program leaders and professionals throughout programs in the Diocese, brought together to share their knowledge with colleagues in similar programs, and experts in program and service areas supported by Episcopal Charities. FUND DEVELOPMENT The fund development activities of Episcopal Charities generate all the funds used in its grantmaking program and more than 80% of its total annual revenue. With a small administrative staff and an actively engaged board of directors, Episcopal Charities is able to directly allocate more than 85% of funds raised publicly to program activities, a figure considerably higher than industry standards.
