Wilsonville church to host auction to support community initiatives
The Wilsonville-based St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church will host an auction in May designed to fund myriad community initiatives.
It hopes to raise $20,000 for things like COVID-19 relief, food banks in Wilsonville and Canby, holiday dinners for families, backpacks and supplies for students, Portland Rescue Mission and Stove Team International, according to a news release.
"In scripture, it is abundantly clear that we are called to care for one another. Out of the challenges of this past year, we have experienced unexpected grace when we have stopped and cared for one another. Loving our neighbors is the finest way for us to love God," the release read.
The auction will take place May 5-15. To register, visit https://www.stfranciswilsonville.org/give-to-st-francis.html.
