On the third Thursday of each month St. Mark's offers free dinners between 4:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to any individuals or families in need of them. People of the church cook in St. Mark's kitchen and serve the meal in the large Gathering Room. Help is always needed and appreciated in supporting these dinners.
Members of St. Mark's join others in providing gifts of canned and boxed food for two food pantries. Contributions support the St. Paul's Food Pantry in Syracuse and the Baldwinsville Food pantry. Please help regularly by placing donated food in the church's Gathering Room in the indicated boxes. A posted sheet lists preferred items.
At certain times of the year members of St. Mark's provide gifts for people in need. Christmas gifts are provided to the Baldwinsville Christmas Bureau. All are invited to participate in gift-giving.
St. Mark's periodically provides varieties of support to the Northeast Farm Workers' Association and migrant workers in the Baldwinsville area.
