Our pantry depends on the generosity of others. We graciously accept donations of dry cat and dog food, and kitty litter! ALL donations are accepted, whether you attend our church or not. We would be blessed to receive donations either by dropping them off at our church at anytime (our 24 hour chapel is always open, and is checked daily), or we welcome shipments from Chewy, Amazon, or other on-line services. They can be mailed to The Stable at Church of the Nativity-Episcopal, 7300 Lantern Road, Indianapolis, IN 46256. You are also free to drop of donations when The Stable is open, (see above) and we will gladly accept them!
The Stable is operated by volunteers. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A MEMBER OF THE CHURCH TO VOLUNTEER. Just click the link below, and add your name and contact information to the list. Volunteers must be at least 8 years of age, and accompanied by a parent. This is a wonderful opportunity for families with children to give back to others. Of course, during the pandemic, everyone must be masked.
The Stable Pet Food Pantry
On October 4, 2020, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, Nativity opened a Pet Food Pantry for those with pets who find themselves struggling to feed their pet due to financial hardship. Particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Nativity felt there was an urgent need to provide support for those who might consider surrendering their pet to a shelter. We recognize that pets provide solace during a stressful time, and that surrendering a pet to shelter is traumatic for the family and the pet.
