November tuition is now due. You will have until Tuesday, November 10, 2020 before 4:00 P.M. to pay without a late fee. We accept checks, cash and online bill pay through your bank.
The holidays are rapidly approaching! We currently are carrying the smaller denomination scrip in Starbuck’s - $5, Target - $10 and Walmart - $10. These make for great stocking stuffers, a nice gesture for your mail carrier or a treat for your neighbor. Reminder: Items that are not in stock take up to two weeks to order. Please keep that in mind as you plan for the holidays. Please email your orders and any Scrip needs to firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for your support of our Scrip program.
“GIVING THANKS” NOVEMBER FOOD DRIVE
This year our annual “Giving Thanks” November Food Drive will be collected differently. Since students are not on campus, there will be a truck from the Food Pantry on Saturday, November 14th between 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. to collect your food donations in the main parking lot at St. Mark’s. You may also drop off food items on Thursday, November 12th and Friday, November 13th front parking lot, next to the turtle by the walk way.
We especially need canned green beans (NOT French cut) for Thanksgiving baskets. Six hundred cans are needed. Other items needed are canned meat, soup, beans, boxed meals, cereal, peanut butter etc. Please remember no expired dates or glass jars.
During November and December monetary donations are also collected so that the Food Bank can provide a Christmas basket for needy families.
If you can’t make the food drive you may donate by check made out to St. Mark’s Church. Please note “Christmas food baskets”.
Online donations may be made at:
Thank you for your generosity.
