Christian Community Service Center Back-to-School Fund

As we work to adapt our ministries to challenges created by COVID-19, we have created a new way to support the Christian Community Services Center Back-to-School Program. You can now text your donation to support this program. Just $50 provides an underserved child with a uniform, shoes and school supplies.

How to Use Text to Give
Our text-to-give system is easy to use. Simply text SMEC to 73256. (Enter 73256 instead of the phone number and then type SMEC in the message field.) You will be prompted to enter your chosen contribution amount and then select CCSC in the drop-down menu. You will also enter your credit card number. This is a secure mobile giving site. A confirmation text is sent immediately to your phone with a receipt number.

Other options:
If you would like to donate through the online website, click here and choose CCSC from the drop-down menu.

If you prefer to mail a check, please address the check to St. Martin’s Episcopal Church and note in the memo area “CCSC Back to School.” You can mail it to St. Martin’s, Attn: CCSC BTS.

Bookstore & Gift Shoppe

Donation of Items

From time to time, various groups within the St. Martin’s community will offer an Outreach Ingathering in conjunction with an event. This information will be included in the publicity for the event. Additionally, St. Martin’s has collection boxes in the Activity Center, though we cannot accept mattresses. For updated information on current needs, or to verify whether your donation will be accepted, contact Cyd Gillette at  713-830-4128 or email hidden; JavaScript is required.
