ST PETERS & ST ANDREWS CHURCH

St. Peter's & St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Providence, Rhode Island is seeking volunteers to work for on Saturday afternoons to help maintain our facility (primarily used as a Food Pantry) such as gardening, yard work, organization, cleaning. This is an ideal opportunity for an ongoing service project-- we would like to work with 4 organizations to rotate one Saturday per month. We want St. Peter & St. Andrew's Food Pantry & Thrift Shop to be a beacon of hope in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood. Please help us beautify our building and make it more welcoming!

We are a small parish with a big mission-- each Saturday, we fed 80-100 families from the 02908 zip code from our food pantry. In addition to our Food Pantry, we have a "pop up thrift shop" selling household goods for a nominal cost (all items are under $5) plus we are a COVID testing site & vaccination center. This is a lot of activity for a church with a small but welcoming congregation. We need more hands! Particularly because it is our goal to become a "Center of Hope" giving our food pantry recipients more resources such as job application skills, ESL, student tutoring. This is going to be really based on the needs of the community we serve (primarily Spanish speaking; mostly from Ecuador).

This is COVID conscious environment (mask wearing, social distancing and gloves provided.
We are an inclusive, all welcoming church!
Please reach out to Sarah at ‪(401) 830-0470‬ (call/text) for more information or need any questions answered.
