Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington (SMGW) is holding an all-inclusive COVID-19 drive from now until September 30. It is collecting many things people in need can use now, from face masks and grocery gift cards to toiletries and toilet paper. SMGW has a comprehensive list of needed items on its website.
You may donate items that you order on Amazon.com. Items you have or order can be brought/mail to SMGW’s NW D.C. office at 1516 Hamilton Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20011, 202-722-2280, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.
As one of the founding member churches of SMGW in 1986, St. Stephen and the Incarnation (which started the Loaves and Fishes program) has been and continues to be committed to the mission of empowering its neighbors. The coronavirus crisis has disproportionately impacted our vulnerable neighbors. Responding through this campaign, called The Empower Our Neighbors in Need Campaign, is a way to help.
