Lazarus Boat Works is a First Lutheran outreach ministry that obtains small sailing, rowing and power craft, both wooden and fiberglass, either as gifts (which may yield the donator a tax benefit), or at low cost. The boats are refurbished, sold, and all proceeds go to the East Greenwich Interfaith Food Cupboard. As our administrator and our workers are volunteers, no pay is deducted from money received from sale of boats or donated marine equipment.

If you would like to support this ministry by donating, selling or buying a boat, or by donating boating equipment or hardware (we will even accept cash!), please email or call LBW Director John Amaral at (401) 294-9717,
