CARITAS (Churches Around Richmond Involved to Assure Shelter)

First Mennonite provides shelter for homeless persons for one week a year during the winter months. Our guests are bused to the church each evening and are picked up after an early breakfast. We serve dinner in the evening. We also provide a brown bag lunch for each guest in the morning. Volunteers prepare meals and stay overnight to be available for the CARITAS staff person. Our church has supported this project for more than twenty years.

Lamb's Basket Food Collection and Angel Tree Gifts

LAMB'S Basket aims to provide food to needy families in Henrico County. First Mennonite supports this food pantry by collecting non-perishable foods once monthly throughout the year, and each Sunday in November prior to Thanksgiving. During December an Angel Tree is set up at the church, allowing FMC congregants the opportunity to purchase Christmas gifts for families without the necessary resources to provide presents for their Christmas celebration.
