Help Given

by anonymous on January 30, 2020
On the first Sunday of every month, churchgoers at St. Margaret's are invited to make an extra gift (beyond their pledge) to the clergy discretionary fund.  The purpose of the discretionary fund is to provide resources that the clergy may appoint to "be applied to such pious and charitable uses as shall be thought fit by the Member of the Clergy."  In 2019, this community provided $3,462 to be used for such purposes, and the clergy distributed $3,320 to people seeking assistance.

Every month, we're able to help people pay their utilities when they need a little help.  There are always more requests than we can meet, but we know that these gifts make a real difference in people's lives.  You can make a gift to the discretionary fund at any time to support the poor in our community.
