Exciting things happening at St. Matthew's, Sacramento

River City Food Bank had an open house on Sept. 27 where they celebrated two years (YAY!) of serving at The Center at St. Matthew's. While initially planning to serve 15,000 clients at St. Matthew's, in 2018 they served 44,000 people, and this need only continues to rise in the Arden-Arcade area. Read more about the open house and work being done at St. Matthew's here.

The Rev. Babette (Babs) Haggenjos, Deacon at St. John's, Roseville, will be transferring to St. Matthew's, Sacramento. Her last day at St. John's will be Oct. 20, and her first day at St. Matthew's will be Oct. 27.

 Read the full announcement from St. John's here.

We are excited for the great work that is happening at The Center at St. Matthew's, and we invite to consider joining this work! There is a high need for volunteers to pack and distribute food the second and fourth Fridays of each month. If you are interested in helping, please contact the Rev. Cindy Long at deaconcindy@stmichaelscarmichael.org.

 In recent St. Michael's newsletter, Jim Hamill of St. Michael's, Carmichael, shared his experience on volunteering. He said: "I wasn't sure I would be comfortable volunteering with River City Food Bank at The Center at St. Matthew's. Now half a dozen visits later I look forward to those second and fourth Fridays. Handing out food to the needy with a welcoming smile helps me realize this is what we're supposed to be doing."
