Food Delivery Program
Under the leadership of Jean Anne Zimmerly, and thanks to your contributions, All Saints has been able to regularly provide meals and treats to such first responders as Hillsboro Fire and Police, and front-line ICU and COVID-19 unit workers at OHSU (formerly Tuality Hospital).
We are grateful for your support, as are those who benefit from it. Even with an increase in people becoming vaccinated, and as gathering protocols are relaxed, there is still a great need for this vital ministry until we get the “all clear.”
Please consider supporting our meal program – it’s easy! You may donate online here, or mail a check to All Saints at 372 NE Lincoln St., Hillsboro, OR, 97124. Be sure to include “meals” in the memo line in your donation.
Thanks to the efforts of Josephine Chung (daughter of Fr. Jon and Gemma Won), All Saints is has expanded its outreach in the community by providing “blessing bags” to those experiencing homelessness.
Josephine’s vast experience in serving homeless veterans forms the basis for these care kits. They’re very easy to assemble and are a wonderful way to convey practical help and compassion to our neighbors in need.
We are grateful to those who have assembled and dropped them off at our outdoor shelter located on the fence near the Mother’s Tree garden on 4th St.
If you’d like a list of what to include in a Blessing Bag, please email Steve in the church office.
All Saints, through our successful School Backpack Program, is helping to address hunger in our neighborhoods. Every other week, a group of volunteers (led by Esther Portnoy) fills 25 backpacks with food for children and their families to eat over the weekend, when kids do not receive the free breakfasts and lunches they do at school. All Saints’ backpack outreach program benefits students at McKinney School in Hillsboro
Most of the food for the program comes at little to no cost from the Oregon Food Bank, but it’s necessary to buy certain items from local stores. We invite you to share in this effort by bringing some of these supplies to church.
We’re grateful for whatever help you can give. Please bring your donations to church on Sunday, or to the office during its business hours. For more information on the School Backpack Program, please contact the church office.
All Saints is privileged to welcome community outreach organizations into our building. We have had the pleasure of hosting the American Red Cross for blood drives. We have also supported regular meetings of Anonymous Personal Development Help Group Overeaters Anonymous.
We look forward to hosting in the future once CoVid restrictions are lifted and enable the use of our building by larger groups.
