BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING

ST.  ANNE’S MEMORIAL GARDEN FUNDRAISER

Cremation rates in Iowa are at over 40 percent.  The Ankeny, Iowa area does not have a Memorial Garden associated with a church.  St. Anne’s Episcopal Church wishes to offer the option of a sacred space for in ground interment of ashes to the public. Funds are needed for the development of the Memorial Garden to be located on the grounds of St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Ankeny, Iowa.

All donations are tax deductible. Please click on the link below to donate: https://www.gofundme.com/bx974-st-annes-memorial-garden

St. Anne’s will also be collecting bottles and cans to support the building and maintenance of a Memorial Garden at St. Anne’s.  Please bring your donations of cans and bottles to St. Anne’s and place them in the box beneath the table in the Parish Hall or the black garbage can outside labeled “bottles and cans only”.  Please rinse out your bottles and cans and do not include the lids.  Thank you!
