All women who attend Saint Michael's Church are members of ECW and are encouraged participate in all ECW activities. Luncheon meetings and programs are held during the Winter and Spring seasons. Programs include talks concerning local charities, and other subjects of interest to Sanibel Island residents.  The Fashion Show Luncheon by Noah's Ark Thrift Shop is a very popular spring program. Following an informal luncheon, volunteers from Noah's Ark model clothing from the shop. The luncheon and show are given in appreciation to the customers and donors to the shop.

Noah’s Ark is the chief ministry of the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) and is staffed entirely by volunteers (women and men) from Saint Michael and All Angels. 

 

The Ark008

 

 

It all begins with our wonderful donors who contribute their gently used clothing, knick-knacks and smaller furniture pieces to Noah’s Ark. The back room is a place of community and fellowship.  Lasting friendships are made. Side by side volunteers sort through bags and boxes of gently used merchandise and prepare it for sale. Our men work tirelessly checking the appliances and assisting with the furniture.

Our customers come from both on-island and off-island. Visitors to Sanibel make it a point to include a trip to Noah’s Ark in their plans. Anything can be found at the Ark – if it is donated and in good order, it is offered for sale. Whole wardrobes can be accumulated; houses can be furnished; Halloween costumes and life-like Christmas trees can be found. It is truly a miracle and the miracle takes place daily at the Ark. 

 

Most of our profits are donated to charities identified through applications submitted to the St. Michael's Grant Committee. Grants are made to benefit local, national, and worldwide needs. We have been able to support: Abuse, Counseling and Treatment (ACT), AfriAid, Agape Flights, Alliance for Fair Food, Community Cooperative Ministries Inc. (CCMI), Community Housing Resources (CHR), Educational Concerns for Hunter Organization (ECHO), Friends in Service Here (FISH) of SanCap, Gladiolus Learning & Development Center, Guardian ad Litem Foundation, Habitat for Humanity (Lee & Collier County), Harry Chapin Food Bank, Human Trafficking Awareness, Lighthouse of SWFL, Litaracy Council Gulf Coast, Our Little Roses; Partners in Breast Cancer Care, Practical, Academic, Cultural & Educational (PACE) Center for Girls, Salvation Army, Sanibel Sea School, and South Fort Myers Food Pantry.

  

 

 

Dear Lord,

We thank you for the miracle that is Noah’s Ark.

It allows us to be generous to those less fortunate,

and allows us to be generous in friendship to each other and to our customers.

Give us grateful hearts, help us to be kind, bless us as we do your work.

We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
