Saturdays in Somerville
Looking for Volunteers, 9:30-noon on September Saturdays: 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th at the new pantry location the Shiloh Pentecostal Church located at 139 Davenport St., Somerville. We’ll distribute food to folks who aren’t able to make it to the food bank during the week. Please contact Lea O’Shea (
) for more details.
For summer collection, we've liked to ask for laundry detergent (on sale many stores this week), toilet paper ("spare a square"), toothpaste and toothbrushes, deodorant, shampoo, and sturdy grocery bags. Please leave the items in the Link. Thanks for your generosity!
A Note from the Flower Guild
Our St Mark’s flower guild would love to add a few new members to our team!
The duties are not tough: 1) Once each month or so, each member has an assigned Saturday to stop in and arrange a memorial if we have one, and take a moment to water the indoor and outdoor pots. 2) We work together for a couple of hours before Easter and Christmas to beautify St. Mark’s.
If you are interested, please reach out to Jan Williams (
, 908-565-4174) Thank you!
