As you fill your own cart, please consider grabbing a few extra supplies. Bring them to Burke, place the goods in the basket marked "Food Pantry" in the Narthex. Cash donations are also welcomed.
During June we will be collecting healthy snacks. This includes raisins, cheese and cracker packs, fruit cups, granola bars (no peanuts please), pretzels, and similar items.
During Lent, our parishioners donated over 1500 pounds of food to help the River Food Pantry!
We actively participate in Stewardship projects through Lutheran World Relief. Quilts, School Kits, Baby Care Kits and Personal Care Kits are assembled each year.
In 2018 we sent to Lutheran World Relief:
75 School Kits
50 Baby Care Kits
50 Personal Care Kits
Burke made 110 quilts to send to Lutheran World Relief. Ninety additional quilts were made and given to River Food Pantry, Ronald McDonald House, Salvation Army and the Lac Courte Oreilles Tribe. In addition quilts were given to High School graduates and for baptisms. Our quilters meet every Wednesday morning from 9:00 til noon.
We are a host church for Dane county and volunteer and support several build days each year.
On the 3rd Friday of each month 10 volunteers from Burke are needed to help with food distribution. If you can help, sign up on the sheet in the Narthex. You need to arrive by 5pm and are usually finished about 8pm.
