Anne de Wolfe, a long-time and devoted member of St. Gregory’s, cared passionately about people who suffered from hunger. Upon her death in 1977, St. Gregory’s received a restricted bequest that enabled the parish to begin a ministry to address hunger in our community and beyond. Through additional gifts from those who were inspired by Anne’s thoughtfulness, the fund has grown. The fund distributes gifts annually from earnings on investments as directed by St. Gregory’s parishioners, in coordination with the rector.
Past recipients of Anne de Wolfe grants are:
· The South Florida Haiti Project for the feeding of the elementary school students at St. Gregory’s mission in Bondeau, Haiti
· Boca Helping Hands Backpacks to provide weekend nourishment for Boca Raton children
· Holy Redeemer Episcopal Church’s homeless feeding ministry in Lake Worth
· St. Laurence Chapel Homeless Day Shelter (Pompano Beach)
· The discretionary fund of St. Gregory’s clergy allocated to feeding the homeless
