American Red Cross

Three (3) American Red Cross Blood Donation Drives are held each year at St. Matthew in the Folkemer Fellowship Hall. The donation drives are typically held in February, August and October. The units of blood collected help to replenish the hospital blood banks.





Compassion York

This service project is organized and sponsored by Grace Lutheran Church in York. St. Matthew members participate in cooking and preparing meals to feed the needy and homeless people of York City and York County. St Matthew members volunteer twice a year.




Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity of York has several building projects throughout the year. Over the past several years, St. Matthew has had many members volunteer their time and experience, particularly with the "Building-on-Faith" projects in September. Volunteers, ages 18 and over, are needed not just for construction, but also construction clean up, food preparation/serving, making telephone calls, and child care for the organization.




St. Matthew Refugee Family Committee

The Refugee Family Committee members are volunteers who help with preparing, organizing and obtaining housing, furnishings, clothing, education, transportation and much more.


Samaritan’s Purse-Operation Christmas Child

No longer participate.




York County Crop Walk

The annual York County Crop Walk is held the second Sunday in October.

The funds generated from this walk benefit Church World Service which in turn benefits our food pantry here at St. Matthew. The event is held at John Rudy Park here in York. Multiple local churches participate in this event.
