St. Philip welcomes community members to join us in the following
NEED-Northeast Emergency Distribution
In Hurst, Texas, 1 in 4 children is facing hunger.
St. Philip will have a monthly drive for NEED
the first Sunday of every month.
A percentage of our Community Garden produce is donated to NEED.
Project "Undy Sunday"
In January 2017 a church member brought a need for neglected and/or abused children entering foster care to our hearts.
Shortly after that, UNDY SUNDAY was born.
The 3rd Sunday of each month is declared "UNDY SUNDAY" at St. Philip.
New underwear, socks, Tshirts, sleepwear, and diapers are collected.
"First night bags" are filled with these items so children can enter their first placement in foster care with new underwear, socks, sleepwear and some toiletries.
