Donations

We’re grateful for all the ways people help us with our mission.  Come share your talents with us, if you have time.  Lend us your experience and expertise.  Share what’s worked for you (or hasn’t) in your community.  Come roll up your sleeves.  Or just come and worship God with us and we can strengthen our faith together.

If, however, you’d also like to donate money to help us in our efforts to walk in the gospel and reach a hand out to the “least of these,” we would be blessed if you did so.  Any amount will make a difference.

MANY THANKS and God bless, however you lend a hand!

    Hi,

    My husband and I live in the area. We cleaned out our closets and wondered if you took housing/clothing donations – or if you could direct us to a facility near by.

    Thanks,
    Shannon Arias

      St. Mary’s does not have storage room, so if you have more than a small number of items. i recommend donating to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. Contact the Church Office at 212-864-4013 for further information.

        Dear Ms. Farley,

        St. Mary’s is not associated with the Missionaries of Charity, although we are in the same neighborhood. St. Mary’s address is 521 West 126th Street.

    I am going through my mother’s memories and I found St. Mary’s membership directories from the 30’s and 40’s – just a few but rather than toss them, I’m wondering whether the church could use a few more for the archives. I’ll always protect them but my family won’t. Rev. Ackley saved my mother and sister from an orphanage even though their mother (who had a job) and grandparents were alive. They grew into amazingly strong women. She adored him. She carried his spirit with her throughout her life. I wish I had asked more questions.
    So anyone interested? I would be glad to mail them.

    • stmarysharlem says:

      If you still have the directories, we would love to have them. We now have completed renovations and have a new Rector who can keep track of things like that. The address is The Rev. Mary Foulke, 521 West 126th St, New York, NY 10027. God bless, Dorothy Ross

        You’ve caught me amidst managing a Harriet Tubman Conference in Cambridge, MD – the area where she grew up. As you know she is a saint in the Episcopal Church – a humanitarian who many of us can just dream about doing. That will be over next week, then I will get back to the books. Your message warmed my heart, I kind of just stopped all the work on behalf of my mother when it seemed that no one was interested. I didn’t see what was going on in your parish, sounds like positive steps. The Church National Archives in TX was willing to take them but this will be better. Interesting how things are coming together for this small family, story for another day.
        Sincerely, Ellen Mousin

        The conference about Harriet Tubman sounds wonderful. Hope it all goes well. No rush about the directories – they have already been waiting a long time! God bless, Dorothy

    Hi,

      Hi La’Tisha,

      Sorry for the delay responding, we are happy to accept donations of working office equipment like printers. Thank you! If you have not already donated it elsewhere, we can accept donations on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 9:30 am and 2 pm.
      peace,
