We are active in LeRoy and our region, as well as engaged in projects globally.
LeRoy Food Pantry & Backpack Club
Each week, we collect non-perishable food items to support LeRoy's Food Pantry (located at the Town Hall on Main St.) and the Backpack Club (packed at the First Baptist Church).
Each December, we work on at least two special projects. Each year, we collect hats, gloves, mittens, scarves and socks for the ECW Mitten Tree which are then distributed to those in need, including any migrant workers who have remained in the area.
In December 2018, we collected money to purchase a cow through Episcopal Relief & Development. We exceeded our goal of $600, raising over $1400 to purchase one cow, one pig, one goat, a flock of chickens, a family well, and 5 shares of seeds, tools, and agricultural training. These items go to families in need in 3rd world countries.
Summer Lunch Program
The Summer Lunch Program is a Community Effort Organized by St. Mark's Church. This is a "Kid Friendly" program that serves a FREE tasty and nutritious lunch to all children and teens, ages 18 years old and younger, in a safe environment. Lunches are served Monday through Friday from 12:00-12:45.
The program ran from July 1 to August 23, 2019. In the event of inclement weather, lunch was served at St. Mark's Church, 1 East Main Street, Le Roy.
We are always looking for volunteers to help run this popular program, now in its eleventh year.
