Churches come to­gether for a com­mon cause

Maryland Independent - - Community -

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.
