Don’t miss our Share-Our-Blessings Drive-Through on Saturday, November 21, and find not one, not two, but three ways to give back to our community!
- Angel Tree (supporting First Baptist Head Start in Pittsburg)
- Food Drive (supporting Monument Crisis Center in Concord)
- School Drive (supporting Meadow Homes Elementary School in Concord)
Simply pull into the St. Paul’s parking lot at 1924 Trinity Drive, Walnut Creek, pop open your trunk, and voila! Our speedy crew will unload your items or collect your gift card/check before you can say, “I just did a good deed.” It doesn’t get any easier than that! For needed items, keep reading.
Each year at Christmas, the people of St. Paul’s have the opportunity to give to families of First Baptist Church in Pittsburg, supplying food and gift cards for a festive dinner and gifts under the tree for the children. This year, in the absence of angels hanging from our traditional tree in the narthex of the church, you may simply purchase gift cards or write a check. Target or Walmart are preferred stores for the cards. We will help provide Christmas for family members, mostly single parents, and their children.
Purchase gift cards or write a check with “Angel Tree” on the memo line. On the front of your envelope, in the lower-left corner, write “Attn: Angel Tree” and hand it to a volunteer. Or, if you can’t make it to our drive-through on Saturday, mail it to St. Paul’s at 1924 Trinity Avenue, Walnut Creek, CA 94596, or drop it in the church office mail slot.
Food Drive: Needed Non-Perishable Items Include:
Cereal (low sugar)
Canned tomato products (diced, sauce, etc.)
Pasta and Spaghetti
Mac & cheese
Canned beans, fruit, and vegetables
Canned meals (ravioli, chili, chicken)
Bagged beans and rice (1-2 pound bags)
Please, no perishable items or glass containers.
Monetary Donations to Monument Crisis Center
If you would like to make a monetary donation instead, you can text MCC at 41-444 or make your check out to Monument Crisis Center and note in the memo line, “St. Paul’s Food Drive.” Mail checks to:
Monument Crisis Center
1900 Market Street
Concord, CA 94520
