Food Giveaway on May 2

We are the hands and feet of Christ through our outreach efforts.

St Ambrose in partnership with the Food Bank of Wake and Johnston Counties, will sponsor a drive-by food box pick-up to offer assistance to those impacted by Covid-19 related job loss. 

Set-up will begin at 6am on May 2 and we will work until we give away all food. Please come with your masks and gloves. We will be observing the 6-ft social distancing according to the public health mandate.

We need volunteers willing to work at least 2 hours helping with set-up, boxing and bagging food, loading cars and clean up after the event.

If you can’t join us on May 2, you can still help! Stop by the church on Friday, May 1 between Noon and 4pm and drop off plastic grocery bags, tarps to place under the food pallets and beach umbrellas to cover the food and volunteers as this is a RAIN OR SHINE event.

For more information or to sign up for a specific time, please contact Phyllis Gray (919)815-8874 or Albert Cadogan (919)672-1921.

Our Outreach Ministries

Environment

Saint Ambrose is committed to Environmental Justice in the Southeast Raleigh community. 

In the late 1990s, a group of parishioners at the St. Ambrose Episcopal Church envisioned a way to bolster the community’s spirit: clean up Walnut Creek – a black community that the city had be dumping sewage into for 60-70 years. In addition to volunteering to coming together to reverse the damage of decades of environmental racism in our community, St. Ambrose Episcopal Church executed a capital campaign for numerous upgrades to improve our ecological footprint as a church property.

Education

One Church, One School (OCOS) is a partnership between Saint Ambrose Church and Fuller Elementary School to support efforts in achieving excellence in education.

One Church, One School (OCOS) began in 2013 as an outreach ministry to our neighborhood school. Our belief is the success of students can be tremendously improved by the involvement of churches to provide support and to enhance the quality of education through tutoring, mentoring, teacher appreciation or other identified needs.
