Episcopal Conference Center Oakhurst (ECCO) and St Raphael’s Episcopal Church combine to take advantage of lost power at ECCO to save food and reward First Responders of the Railroad Fire. Electric power lost at ECCO Kitchen so potential lost food was taken to St Raphael’s and prepared for distribution to those responders that were providing security for the Railroad Fire this morning and noon.St Raphael’s still has electrical power for cooking and the Executive Chef Jay Gillett and Pastry Chef Anna Strong relocated and prepared food that would have been lost. -Dennis Fitzgerald, DioSJ ERD Coordinator
St. Raphael’s parking lot was full all week with those responding to the fire and they were grateful for the community of St. Raphael’s and ECCO for the comfort they were offered with friendly faces, food and a place to regroup.
Please keep all of those affected by this fire in your prayers including St. Raphael’s and ECCO.
