The previous Packathon, March 26, by volunteers of Christ Church Greenwich was so successful that another was held on Friday, April 29, in the Parish Hall to pack 35,000 meals to be shipped to Poland to feed the people who have fled from Ukraine.
A Packathon is a volunteer-group food-packing event with people from the tri-state area helping during a two-and-a-half-hour shift to assemble four complete nutritious ingredients, Volunteers weigh the packages, seal them and box them for distribution. This is a simple, organized and cost-effective way to feed children and families who have fled their homes.
Additionally, a team of Christ Church parishioners and clergy are working on helping families to resettle here in the United States. “The Ukraine situation is enormously significant,” the Rev. Marek Zabriskie said. “It is hard to watch the news and sit still. We pray for the people who are suffering and we want to help in any way that we can.”
Christ Church is a lively community of faith composed of people with diverse backgrounds, circumstances and spiritual journeys, bound together by God’s love for all people everywhere and united in the common mission to seek and serve God in all persons.
