St. Andrew and All Souls, Portland operates the Hereford House Food Pantry, which had to be closed due to winter weather and flooding. They have done many needed repairs in order to reopen but still need some additional help: window air conditioner for non-perishable foods, repairs to sink, shelving and racks, etc. They received a $1,000 grant.
St. John the Divine, Springfield also received $1000. They are seeking ways to increase their connection with neighbors. Since they provide a Food Pantry and other events, St. John the Divine would like to install a referral center outside by the church doors, including a little free library, community prayer box, referrals to other services, bulletin board and other assorted materials.
