Ways to Serve
Throughout the pandemic, St. Paul’s has responded to the needs presented by COVID-19 in many ways. One of the most direct ways we have been able to help is by our consistent commitment to meeting food insecurity needs in Carnegie. We have been blessed to work with a collaborative of organizations in Carnegie, led by St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church. This summer, we are increasing our participation in this important ministry, serving children, families, and senior apartment complexes.
Our efforts are centered around 2 initiatives:
- Weekend Bags of Groceries - St. Paul’s parishioners purchase groceries (and are later reimbursed) and assemble weekend bags that are delivered to senior and low-income apartment buildings in and around Carnegie. The bags are assembled at St. John’s on Monday mornings at 10AM.
- Handing out Meals - St. Paul’s has committed to hand out meals twice a day, on Mondays and Fridays, at two different sites in Carnegie. The volunteer shift for the first meal is 10:30AM-12:15PM, and the second shift is 3:45-5PM.
