Gather monthly for a multifaceted and family-friendly opportunity to serving our community. Take your pick: help make sandwiches for our local unhoused community, pack weekend meals for school children receiving low-cost or free lunches, tie fringed fleece on comforting blankets for those needing care, or assemble manna bags for those needing basic sustenance.  Donations of socks, undergarments, tortillas, chocolate, soup packets, crackers, feminine products, canned meat, jerky, canned fruit, gloves, travel-size hygiene items and individually wrapped food and drinks are appreciated.  Meet 7–8pm in the gathering area on the Thursday before the third Friday of each month.  Visit Events for information on upcoming Community Serve Nights.

In addition to Christ Church's ongoing food collection, there are needs for food ministry drivers, pantry stockers, clothing closet organizers, kitchen helpers, hospitality aids, Spanish interpreters, administrative support, general maintenance and more.

Hypothermia Shelter

The Hypothermia Shelter operates from December through March, providing dinner, shelter and breakfast-to-go for up to 24 homeless persons living along the Route 1 corridor in Alexandria. Some volunteers prepare and serve meals while others supervise activities and chaperone overnight.
