SOME OUTREACH OPPPORTUNITIES
SUMMER 2010 OUTREACH
There are many children in the Country Pantry area (Clinton, Clark Mills, Westmoreland) that do not have access to school lunches or summer lunch programs. "Lunch bags" were filled using the orange request list on the bag.
Country Pantry Garden
Vegetables were harvested at the Country Pantry Garden located behind Resurrection Life church on Kirkland Avenue. The St. James refrigerator was used to store some of the harvest until it could be delivered to the Country Pantry clients.
Toiletries - as you travel
We are collecting toileties for the area homeless. As you travel, please consider bringing back unused (un-opened) containers of toileties from any hotel/motel stays. These can be placed in the box in the back of the church for distribution to those in need.
Hope House dinner - July and August
St. James prepared and served dinner at Hope House. Click here to learn more about Hope House...
Again, a few hours of your time will help spread the good news of Christ right here at home. Contact Karen A or the church office if you want to help out. Also check the sign-up sheets on the cork board in the Parish Hall and the back of the church.
