St. Timothy’s DOK’s partnership with Hagar’s House Emergency Shelter

May 7, 2018

The Daughters of the King (DOK) (Esther Chapter) of St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Decatur continues to strengthen its relationship with the Decatur Cooperative Ministry. A check in the amount of $100.00 was recently presented to Ms. Marlene White, Executive Director of the Decatur Cooperative Ministry, to enhance and support the work of Hagar’s House Emergency Shelter for women and children. 

In 2016, the Daughters of the King began its ministry with Hagar’s House by providing hot meals to residents on a quarterly basis. In 2017, the Episcopal Community Foundation for Middle and North Georgia awarded a Small Acts of Charity Grant to St. Timothy’s to renovate kitchen space as part of the expansion of its Food Pantry Ministry. The resulting expansion of this Ministry has allowed the Daughters of the King to significantly increase the number of hot meals provided to residents of Hagar’s House in the last two quarters of 2017 and the first quarter of 2018. 

The DOK of St Timothy’s is grateful for the opportunity to partner with the Decatur Cooperative Ministry and to be of service to Hagar’s House Emergency Shelter.
