Good Stuff in TEC: Virginia

Donating canned vegetables to a food drive or clothes to a Salvation Army drop box and volunteering for the occasional fund-raiser is frequently the extent of many people's charitable contribution. However, some people simply have the desire to do more and the parishioners at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church are just that type.

Over the summer, the church sent three groups of people on three different mission trips to Pomona, Belize, George, South Africa and Philadelphia to help less fortunate communities and to spread their message to the locals there. The trips to Belize and Philadelphia were youth missions, with young men and women in ninth grade and above, while the trip to South Africa was an adult mission for those 18 and up.
