Community Link

“A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.”

Community Link is an effort to utilize technology and to focus the generosity of our outreach.  This program is a unique database system that will streamline our collections, so we will be better able to directly help meet the needs of our community.  It works in the following manner:

  • Parishioners who would like to participate, submit their e-mail to the office or Outreach Committee.
  • When a need is received (example:  size 10 youth snow boots for a local student, or laundry soap for a neighbor or parishioner) it will be e-mailed to people listed on the Community Link database.
  • One person agrees to donate the item by replying with a “yes” e-mail.
  • A second e-mail is then sent out to inform participants that the item has been taken care of.
  • The parishioner then secures the item and brings it to the church office in a timely manner.

There is nothing new about “helping your neighbor”.  It’s just a new way of doing it!

Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.  ~Matthew 25:40~

We look forward to adding your e-mail address to this exciting, innovative way of helping keep our community strong.  For more information contact, bornholdtb@stlukesepiscopal.org.
