The mission of the Community Action Committee (CAC) is to support carefully-selected community organizations with volunteer time, expertise, and money, invested in projects and programs led by King’s Chapel members.
CAC was established in April 2012, combining the former Social Action (SAC) and Charities & Appeals (C&A) committees. We were asked not just to reduce redundancy, but to create a new model. We have adopted a project structure, with projects proposed and led by a volunteer "champion" or project manager.
CAC will serve: (1) KC's partner organizations by using scarce resources for maximum impact; and (2) KC itself, by engaging all members and friends, as they are willing and able, in aspects of service to our wider community.
Once a month, King’s Chapel partners with a local organization by offering our Sunday Collection. The Calendar of Second Sunday collections are as follows:
Louis D Brown Peace Institute
Boston Alliance of Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Youth, Inc.
Backpacks for the Homeless
Each December, King's Chapel provides Backpacks for the Homeless, which is coordinated through our partners at common cathedral. Last year we donated 66 backpacks filled with hats, gloves, scarves, socks, personal care items, and non-perishable food items. They were a most welcome gift for many of our neighbors last winter.
"Last year when I began this program I didn't even know who I would deliver backpacks to, I only knew I wanted to help those in need in some small way. Anything you can donate; whether it's backpacks,personal care items, food, gift certificates, time, or money, is much appreciated. Together we can enrich the lives of others and make a difference in our beautiful city" Judy Luca
