Wondering how you can help?

If you would like to contribute to the St. David’s Federal Employee Assistance Fund, here’s how you can donate:

    • Go online. Visit the St. David’s online giving page, select “Other” from the list, and note “federal employees” in the memo. 
    • Pay at the register. Let the cashier know you’d like to donate to help federal employees. In Café Divine, you can add $14 to your bill. This amount covers an entrée, two sides, and a dessert during Thursday Lunch. In Holy Grounds, add a small cup of coffee when you check out.
    • Write a check. Make your check payable to St. David’s Episcopal Church, and put “Federal Employee Assistance Fund” in the memo. You may drop off your check in the small box near the front desk.
