Your Donations Make a Difference!
During this time of safer-at-home, many of you are asking how you can help St. Charles Parish and the area community. Following are some ways that you may help. Please know that we want you to be safe at home, but if you need to drop off a food donation or financial support, please know our church “foyer” (main entrance) will be open Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm (use the door on the far right to enter).
Here are some ways that you may help…
First of all, we need you to pray! If there is one thing that we can ask of you, it is to pray every day. Perhaps now is the time to take the One Percent Challenge – spend 15 minutes a day in prayer with God. If you need some inspiration, take a look at the many prayer opportunities the current bulletin.
Continue your weekly giving to St. Charles Parish! Your contributions are needed and appreciated! Our staff and teachers are mostly working remotely, however, some staff and our priests are working in the building and the facilities still need to be heated and maintained so that when our doors are open we will be fully operational.
E-giving: The easiest way to financially support the parish is through our secure online E-giving portal, which allows you the control to set up a personal account and maintain your giving amount and frequency.
Weekly Envelopes: You may continue to give through your weekly envelopes by mailing to the Parish (313 Circle Dr., Hartland, WI 53029) or drop off during open “foyer” times listed above. If you don’t have envelopes that’s okay. Just make sure your name is clearly marked so you may receive credit on your yearly statement.
Other Financial Support: Additional one-time monetary donations, stocks and memorial or other financial gifts are welcome as well and at any time. For questions on any of these giving options, please contact our Director of Administrative Services Marge Beck (email@example.com).
Consider a gift of food or money to the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry. Every week in the bulletin, the food pantry lists current items needed. If you are not able to donate food at this time, the pantry welcomes financial support to help pay for rent and utilities of its location on Lawn Street in Hartland. The food pantry is available to anyone in the Hartland and surrounding area communities.
Consider a financial donation to the St. Vincent de Paul Society. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) relies 100 percent on volunteer and financial support to assist those in the area in need. Last year alone, SVdP provided assistance to 285 clients for items such as rent, utilities, food and clothing. As this unprecedented time continues, the need is anticipated to rise and makes your contribution even more important. If you would like to become a SVdP volunteer, please contact the Parish Office at 262-367-800.
Gifts to the SVdP Food Pantry or SVdP Society may be mailed to the Parish or dropped off Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm in the church foyer. Please clearly mark where the donation is to be designated.
Outreach Services Team programs continue. There are some needs of those in the community that are out of the scope of the SVdP Society. That is where the Outreach Services Team steps in. The team is currently provided meals to the local men’s shelter. If you are currently part of the Outreach Services Team, thank you and please continue to drop off items when needed for outreach programs Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm in the church foyer. If you would like to join this team, contact Terri Blazek at 262-367-7608.
