This question is inspired by a discussion my husband and I were having the other day about the ways different denominations/beliefs looked on charitable "giving." I was just wondering what types of charities your church or religious group supports and what members of the community benefit from them? Sorry if this question isn't worded very well.Answer Question

Right now we are busy with Operation Christmas child which is affiliated with Sumerian's purse, Franklin Grahams ministry. They make up shoe boxes to send to the ultra poor kids of the world. We are also making food baskets for the hungry. These will be donated to families that have requested them so they can have a nice Thanksgiving. The H.S kids are involved with the rescue mission and having a blanket drive for the homeless. During the year we primarily support an organization called Love Inc. which unites churches with non-church agencies to meet individual needs throughout the community. It's sort of an umbrella agency that anyone can use for most types of needs, especially short term or emergency needs.

Since there is no authority for Neopaganism, there is nobody to say "support this cause," but the belief system often moves it's followers to support environmental charities. Most Pagans I know personally belong to one or more environmental organization. One local coven (which I do not belong to but have participated in public events they with) volunteers once a month at a homeless shelter/food bank as a group. Another (which a friend of mine belongs to) has adopted a highway, so they clean up trash together on a regular basis. My family's charitable activity has been influenced by my daughter's extreme concern for the animals we share the world with. We belong to a handful of wildlife protection organizations & support the local animal shelter, as well as our general environmental support. Because of my passions, we also support some historical preservation organizations.
