Following Jesus’ commandment set out in Matthew 25:35-37 to feed the hungry, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked and visit the sick and those in prison, St. Thomas reaches out in the community and the world by working with these groups:

Backpack Pals | St. Thomas Episcopal Church

St. Thomas parishioners fill backpacks weekly for local children.

Advent Angel Tree Parishioners choose a gift tag off the Christmas tree and purchase the children’s or adults’ wished-for gifts.

Back Pack Pals collects donations and provides area school children in need with a back pack of food to take home for weekend meals. St. Thomas takes the lead in providing food for over 40 children each week in two Beaufort County elementary schools.

Pet Pantry of Eastern North Carolina The Pet Food Pantry is the area’s first dedicated charitable pet food resource and was established in 2013 to help prevent the abandonment or surrender of animals when their families cannot afford to feed them.

Martha’s Project   Martha’s is a ministry with area churches meeting the physical and spiritual needs of the community in eastern Beaufort County. Martha’s operates a thrift store and uses proceeds to buy food for families in need. St. Thomas parishioners are involved in unloading, bagging and distributing food on a regular schedule at Martha’s.

Salvation Army   We participate in bell-ringing for the Salvation Army for 3 weekends in December to provide Christmas gifts and food for those in need.
