Helping the residents of Coconut Grove through the Thelma Gibson Health Initiative
For over 26 years the members of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church have been donating the second Sunday collection to the Coconut Grove Community. These funds provide emergency assistance for utility bills, prescriptions, food, etc., to elderly or disabled residents of Coconut Grove – residents whose needs would otherwise fall through the cracks in our social services networks.
For all of those years, St. Stephen’s member Mrs. Ann Strickland has been the contact person for the Fund, of which she is a founding member. On a visit to Mrs. Strickland’s house you are welcomed to a parlor decorated with angels from all over the world and a handshake from Peppy, Ann’s protective dog.
Thank you, Ann. You are a true Angel.
