Goode Ritson Grant Program
The Outreach Committee is once again accepting grant applications, for up to $2,000, from local charities for consideration under this year’s Goode Ritson Grant Program. All grants will come from the Goode Ritson Endowment Fund. Eligibility requirements have changed this year: all charities must be locallybased (western Alameda and western Contra Costa counties) and have direct involvement with one or more members of St. Clement’s. If you are involved in a local charity, consider suggesting that they submit an application.
For questions, please contact the church office or Outreach Chair Don Miller (email@example.com). Applications must be submitted to the church office no later than November 14.
The 2016/2017 application:
After the 10:00 service on November 13 the Committee is holding its annual Outreach Fair.
Organizations historically sponsored by St. Clement's will be exhibiting this year. We hope the fair provides parishioners and visitors with an opportunity to learn about these worthy organizations and how they can become more involved.
Please join us for a fun time.
Join the Outreach Committee.
Feel free to contact Don Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Annual Breakfast Drive
Our Annual Breakfast drive concluded with the members of our EYC (Episcopal Youth Club) and Sunday School groups building a great Wall of Jericho out of boxes of Cheerios, Instant Oatmeal, and Cream of Wheat. The Wall was so well engineered that it took many attempts to knock it down.
The equivalent of over 2,750 meals were collected this year, exceeding previous years' totals. Many thanks to everyone who contributed.
Proceeds went to the Alameda County Community Food Bank, which provides food to food programs and pantries throughout the East Bay.
The St. Clement's Outreach Committee plans and takes part in a variety of activities designed to help those in need - both locally and globally.
Our current projects are:
