Network was founded in 1985 and is a 501©(3) nonprofit charitable organization supported by businesses, individuals, and a coalition of religious, civic and social organizations. Network provides health and emergency services to children, low-income families, and senior citizens in need within the RISD. Emergency Services, the Adolescent and Children’s Clinic, the Seniors’ Net and the Trinity Wellness Clinic all offer volunteers an opportunity to support and directly volunteer their time during the year.
Every Sunday we ask that parish members donate food items for the Network food bank by placing canned goods and sundries in the wagon located in the Narthex. The 3rd Sunday is designated as Network Sunday although food is always needed weekly. By donating food and sundry items on Sundays at Epiphany you are helping to provide for families in times of need.
Epiphany also collects school supplies for Network each year, has an angel tree at Christmas and provides funds for everyday and special projects.
Interested in volunteering?
Epiphany has many members who directly volunteer to interview families to determine needs; we work in the food bank to sort and bag food for families; we prepare bags of school supplies in the fall; and we assist seniors trying to remain in their homes, to name a few volunteer opportunities. You may contact Network directly to find a volunteer opportunity suited to you.
