Relief for those in Gaza

You know about the humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza. Before October 7, about 80% of Gaza’s population of over two million people relied on humanitarian aid. Now, nearly every resident urgently needs aid. Our Poor Box collection for the month of March will go to Anera (American Near East Refugee Aid) which is an American 501(c)(3) non-governmental and non-religious organization that provides humanitarian and development aid to the Middle East, specifically the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, Lebanon and Jordan. It is one of the only groups that is successful in delivering food, water, medicine and hygiene kits right now to those in Gaza displaced by the war. The Poor Box is located in the narthex of the church at the bottom of the choir loft stairs  and in St. Peter Claver Chapel. – Thank you for your kind generosity.
