Poor Box

Since earliest Christian times and in the spirit of Christ's teaching, the faithful have given of their time, talent and treasure to assist those in need.  Holy Redeemer encourages all parishioners to make donations in the poor boxes located at the church entrances.  These funds are accumulated and dispensed throughout the year to worthy charities primarily in the Washington area but also to others abroad.  In every instance these funds go to organizations that are engaged in assisting those in need.  The Farm of the Child orphanage in Honduras has been a recipient of funds in recent years as has missionary work in Guatemala.  Donating in the poor boxes is an excellent way to meet Christ's command to help the poor and needy.
