Bundles of cedar shingles

This bundle of shingles has your name on it!

We need 120 bundles to replace St. George’s roof.

Your donation of $200 or more, either individually or with other friends as a group, will be acknowledged on a plaque inside the church. You will also receive a 1923 publication, Copper Tints, A Book of Cordova Sketches. This charming booklet has a series of short vignettes written by Katherine Wilson, an early reporter for the Cordova Times, and illustrations are by Rev. Eustace Ziegler, who was in charge of the Episcopal Mission in Cordova from 1909-1924.

ALL donations, of any amount, are welcomed!

$10, $25, $50, whatever amount you can afford.

We will be very grateful for your support.
