What is Adopt A Needy Family?

By | Called to Serve, Charitable Giving, Community | No Comments

The Adopt A Needy Family (AANF) program is a San Antonio-based charity that matches organizations with families in the community who need basic necessities and a little holiday cheer. For over 15 years, the St. George community, through our middle school service organization, the Beta Club, has participated in this Christmas gift-giving project. This year, we have adopted nine families with the goal of providing a few special gifts and items of true need. Many of the gift items are necessities such as clothing, hygiene items, linens, housewares, space heaters and cleaning supplies.

Similarly to last year, the ornaments will be distributed electronically via a link available Thursday, November 11th. Please choose as many gifts as you wish to buy. Participation in the AANF program is strictly voluntary. However, AANF is a wonderful opportunity for St. George to give back as a community, and we hope that you will prayerfully consider participation.

In addition to gift sponsorship, Beta Club would greatly appreciate donations of tissue paper, pre-made bows and Christmas wrapping paper so that the gifts can be wrapped. If you are interested in making a monetary donation in support of larger needs, you can easily do so through a link that will also be available starting November 11th.

If you have any questions, please contact the AANF Coordinators at aanfstgeorge@gmail.com.

We wish you a blessed holiday season!

Your 2021 AANF Coordinators

Texas Water Mission Celebration

By | Charitable Giving, Community | No Comments

Some of our Saint George staff had a great time attending the annual fundraising dinner of the Texas Water Mission that took place last Tuesday, September 28th at the Whitley Theological Center. One of the projects highlighted was the water project at St. Benoit in Mombin Crochu, Haiti. Over the last couple of years, they have done some amazing work!

A cistern holding 22,000 gallons of water now serves the entire population of Mombin Crochu. The same water system serves both the church and school. Residents are able to come and fill up jugs of water and feel safe knowing the water has been tested and treated (as it says on the building). This project is the result of a continued outstanding partnership between St George, Texas Water Mission, and St Benoit. Thanks so much for your support for our friends in Haiti!
