The Synodal Youth Department is Leading a Food Drive for Thanksgiving

With the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion of Eastern America and New York, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, the Synodal Youth Department is operating a food drive in the parishes of the First Deanery of the Eastern American Diocese together with the Patriarchal Parishes in the USA.

The following donations are welcome: canned goods, fruit and vegetable conserves, canned soup, juice, rice, pasta, jam, peanut butter, cookies and crackers, dry cereal, powdered milk, sugar, flour, tea and coffee. Parishes in the greater New York area have large boxes for donated goods.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
