Get Involved at St. Mark’s

“Over 80,000 meals each year.” 

St. Mark’s serves a hearty, healthy mid-day meal every 4th Saturday to an average of 200 people. This is a great way for families to serve together and really make a difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate. We meet at Nativity House (kitchen) at 12:30 (and are done by about 2:30), and all are welcome to help.  If you are unable to serve the meal, you may donate bottles of juice or cookies (homemade especially desired). Please let Melanie Summerour know if you have questions, or if you would like to donate cookies/juice and we can arrange where to leave them at church (melanie5@uw.edu).  Donations of clothing are occasionally needed—watch the Parish Life and The Bridge for updates.
