eScrip signups will be offered on Sunday, May 17 between the 8:00 and 10:15 services.  St. Martin’s will be supported every time you make aeScrip Card purchase at any Schnucks store and present the eScrip card.  By simply swiping a Schnucks eScrip card each time you shop at Schnucks, a small percentage of your purchase will be allocated to St. Martin’s.

eScrip contributions for all participating groups since the program started in 2000 total $427,500,000.  If you do not already have a card, members of the Outreach committee will be in Park Hall to help set you up.  Help St. Martin’s receive a portion of that funding by using your card!  Click here to learn information about eScrip.

Urgent Needs at Food Pantry

Recent Food Drives have yielded lower than usual return. With children out of school and not receiving subsidized breakfast and lunch the demand is greater than ever. Please consider making additional donations of food items this month, including items your own children or grandchildren like to eat in the summer.

 

Circle of Concern provides perishable items to families in need and welcomes monetary donations to fill the gaps left by dry goods and canned items. Checks may be made out to St. Martin’s Episcopal Church with Circle of Concern in the memo line.

 

Current needs include: Canned pasta, tomato products, peanut butter and jelly, canned tuna, adult hygiene and financial donations.

 

Your generosity meets the needs of people in the West County area. Thank you.

St. Martin’s Scholarship Program

Next Sunday, March 16th will be the kick-off for our 13th consecutive year of providing the St. Martin’s Scholarship. Our goal is to provide a $3000 scholarship. The scholarship will be granted to a west county high school senior from the Valley Park, Rockwood or Parkway school districts. These scholarships are to help a local student get a good start into college.

Chris Pallozola, the Executive Director at Circle of Concern will be here to discuss our scholarship and our relationship with Circle. Special envelops will be provided on that day to fund the scholarship. Please consider supporting this program. This St. Martins Scholarship program also provides multiple opportunities to publicize our Church’s community involvement throughout the west county school systems.
