2021 Advent Outreach Opportunities

Details and information about our 2021 Angel Tree partnership will be forthcoming...stay tuned!
In addition to our annual Angel Tree outreach, Portico is pleased to offer two more digital outreach opportunities during this Advent season. The first benefits the Shelter for Help In Emergency (SHE), which provides trauma-informed services for the victims of domestic abuse. The second benefits Legaci Eats, a non-profit community kitchen feeding those in need as well as what they call “front line heroes.” Both organizations provide love and care to our greater Charlottesville community in tangible ways.

If you would like to provide help for SHE, click this link: SHE Wish List, in order to purchase items from the Amazon wish list we have created based on their communicated needs. The items will be shipped to Portico, and we will take care of delivering them to SHE in January.

If you would like to provide help for Legaci Eats, click this link: Legaci Eats Ways to Get Involved, then follow the directions for donating through their Venmo and Paypal links. It only takes about $5 to provide a nourishing and delicious meal to someone in need in our community.

Advent is a season of anticipation and hope, during which we are filled with gratitude for the precious gift of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Thank you for taking this opportunity to celebrate His light and salvation coming into the world by sharing His love with our community.

Legaci Eats

Portico is partnering with Legaci Eats to distribute free meals in our community! Every 2nd and 4th Fridays Legaci Eats sets up at Portico Church to share meals with those in need.

We are looking for volunteers to assist in two ways:
  • Food Prep/Assembly/Serving - Assist the Legaci Eats team with portioning and packing, as well as serving walk-in guests. 
  • Delivery - Assist the Legaci Eats team in delivering food to nearby neighbors
