Red Cross Blood Drive
Throughout the year, St. David’s hosts the Red Cross in holding a blood drive at our Church. The Red Cross is accepting both blood donations and Power Red donations every hour. Power Red donation collects the red cells, but returns most of the plasma and platelets to the donor.
St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church
Each year during the holidays, the St. David’s community collects items to be brought to St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church in Philadelphia, PA. The church than distributes these much needed items to the homeless in the city. Items collected include Blessing Bags during Thanksgiving, and mittens, gloves, hats, and scarves during Christmas time.
Project Ensonga Sewing Ministry
Ugandan girls without sanitary supplies often stay home from school during their periods, missing up to two months of education and opportunity each year. Project Ensonga makes and distributes sustainable feminine hygiene kits for students in Uganda. Designed by Days for Girls International, the kits are washable and last up to three years. After kits were distributed in other Ugandan schools, absentee rates dropped from 36% to 8%.
A few times per month, the Project Ensonga ministry gets together to help sew and assemble these kits.

St. David’s supports Cradles to Crayons throughout the year by accepting donations of clothes, shoes, toys, school supplies, and baby essentials. These donations are then inspected by volunteers and taken to the warehouse for further sorting and distribution.
