Laundry Love

Laundry Love is an outreach ministry of St. Augustine’s that started on September 29th, 2021. The ministry offers free laundry to homeless people at Peanuts Laundry on Walton Way. 

 

"Our ministry is the most recent of a chain of such ministries across the United States. The purpose of this organization is to help restore an individual’s self-worth and dignity who may be marginalized because of homelessness or poverty. St. Augustine accomplished this mission one afternoon through the simple act of providing the financial resources for some to wash their clothes and listening to their stories. For a beginning, the first monthly event at Peanut’s Laundry – Walton Way was a huge success with ten served and twenty loads of laundry washed. Books were also available from our church’s Storybook Ministry, and several were taken by and for children at home." -  The Rev. Deacon John Warner

St. Augustine is dedicated to providing this service on the last Wednesday of each month.  To find out how you can participate and support Laundry Love, contact

StoryBox Ministry

StoryBox is an outreach ministry of St. Augustine’s. The mission of StoryBox
is to help local children perform better in school by getting good-quality books
into the hands and homes of children in low income areas of Augusta. We
distribute books to local kids through neighborhood community centers, the
Richmond County Health Departments, local soup kitchens, community outreach
events and Richmond County schools.


Chances are, you either have children’s books you aren’t using or you know
someone who does. Please consider donating them to StoryBox. We are always
accepting donations of new and gently used children’s books. Books can be
dropped off at St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church during regular office
hours or arrangements can be made for pick up for larger donations. In addition,
if you or your organization would be interested in hosting a book drive, we will be
happy to supply you with the materials to get started! For information please
contact Amanda Peacock at 706-830-4719.

The Christ Church Community Meal is hosted every Saturday at Christ Episcopal Church.   Volunteers from around Augusta come to the Harrisburg neighborhood every weekend to help feed the hungry.  St. Augustine’s provides the food and volunteers for this important ministry every second Saturday of the month.  Please contact the church office at
