Churches come together for a common cause
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Waldorf, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in White Plains and the Masjid Abdul-Moghni Mosque in La Plata combined their efforts for a community food drive to which generous Charles County citizens donated over 3,350 pounds of non-perishable food items. The food was then sorted, boxed and delivered to Joe’s Place Community Food Pantry at Durham Church in Nanjemoy. Joe’s Place, which includes volunteers from several different local churches, has been serving the people of Nanjemoy and surrounding areas since 2006.
On Saturday, Sept. 8, Scout Venture Crew #1321, led by Dr. Ivan Cunningham, center, volunteered their time at the Charles Regional Medical Center (CRMC) Foundation’s 21st Annual Autumn Wine Tasting in Port Tobacco. This event hosts over 1,000 attendees and the scouts are an integral part of making sure the venue stays clean during and after the event. “The scouts go above and beyond to maintain our cleaning efforts and keep a beautiful atmosphere for guests. We are grateful for their continued partnership,” said Susan Mudd Vogel, CRMC Foundation executive director.
Three churches came together recently to collect over 3,000 pounds of food items for Joe’s Place Community Food Pantry in Nanjemoy.
