All Saints Donates $1,100 to St. Philip's Food Pantry

The Rev. Karen Sullivan & Millie McRae, with the All Saints Yard Sale Committee

Each year, the All Saints Yard Sale Committee selects a local organization to direct part of the proceeds from the sale to. This year, the committee selected the feeding ministry of St. Philip's Episcopal Church.

Today at coffee hour, the Rev. Karen Sullivan, deacon at St. Philip's, along with Millie McRae, of St. Philip's outreach committee, and Sean Sullivan joined us at All Saints for the presentation of a check for $1,100, representing 50% of yard sale receipts. Karen shared that these funds will be used as seed money to purchase milk to distribute as part of the church's food ministries.

All Saints parish is excited to support the vibrant missions of our fellow Episcopal churches. St. Philip's works with St. Bridget's Catholic church from 10am-12 noon on the second Saturday of each month for food delivery to elderly residents in the neighborhood around the church, near the IUPUI campus. On the third Thursday of each month, from 6pm-8pm, St. Philip's offers the only weeknight food pantry in the downtown Indianapolis area.
