ALL SAINTS' OUTREACH PROGRAMS 

All Saints supports several outreach programs in the Fort Lauderdale area:

 

T.R.U.E. (Towards Relief of Urgent Emergencies) FUND The TRUE Fund (Towards the Relief of Urgent Emergencies), provides emergency grants of up to $100 for utility bills, emergency housing, children’s clothing, medicine, medical and dental bills, etc. Recipients are screened by various local charitable agencies. Financial donations may be made by using the Special Offering envelopes in the pew racks and marking the envelope for the TRUE Fund. If you would like to donate by credit card, please call our Financial Administrator, Michael Lee, at 954-467-6496, ext. 105. For more information about the TRUE fund, contact Phyllis Barnes.

 

HOSPITALITY WEEK (BEDS AROUND THE ALTAR) Approximately four times a year, working with Hope South Florida, All Saints functions as an overflow emergency shelter for homeless families during a one week period. Typically, two mothers and their children are our guests during the week. They sleep in our facilities and join our parish in fellowship, meals and recreation. Volunteers from the parish provide dinners, play with the children or help with homework, and serve as overnight hosts/chaperones, providing a safe and welcoming environment for these fragile families. For more information, contact Jeff Miller.

All Saints collects supplies for their feeding programs: canned items (pop top cans of beans and wieners, sausages, fruit, macaroni, tuna, chicken); dry goods (rice, beans, cereal, etc); dehydrated onion soup mix, big cans of vegetables, macaroni and cheese, tuna, tomato soup, pastas, chicken noodle soup, ramen soup noodles, saltines (2 pkg. style). We also collect general purpose tools (hammers, screw drivers, etc.).  For more information , contact Frank Asterita.

About UTO

Ever wondered where the United Thank Offering came from?  Or who the people are that are involved?  Want to know who your All Saints representative is?  All kinds of information about the organization can be found on their website by clicking one of the links below.

Each year on the first Sunday of Lent we distribute the "little blue boxes" to everyone attending services.  These boxes are taken home and filled with your change (or bills) during Lent and then returned on Palm Sunday.  It is amazing how everyone's change adds up.  Last year we collected over $3,500!!!

Look for more information in the bulletin each week and check out the UTO website.
