Our current Outreach Opportunities at St. John’s will continue to run through mid-May. Each project is summarized below. If you have any questions about these projects, please feel free to contact Tim Rhodes at 545-8834:
Greeting Cards for the Women of the Swannanoa Correctional Center
The women of the SCC are in constant need of greeting cards to send to loved ones. We are currently collecting these in a designated box at the back of the church. Greeting cards of all types are needed – Birthday cards, thank you notes, blank cards, various holiday greeting cards, “thinking of you” cards, virtually any type of card that might be needed throughout the year. Extra unused greeting cards that you may have sitting around the house are also welcomed.
Food Drive for the Beverly Hills Baptist Church Food Pantry
This time of year the local food pantries tend to be very low on their food supplies. Let’s give the Beverly Hills Baptist Church food pantry a real boost by collecting food for them from now until the middle of May. Any non-perishable food item is welcomed and may be placed at the usual location at the back of the church. Later in May, we will transport all of the food to the Beverly Hills Food Pantry.
Clothing Closet Items needed for Haw Creek Elementary School
Haw Creek Elementary School is currently in need of three categories of clothing for their clothing closet for needy children. Small sized athletic shorts, T-shirts and underwear for boys and girls are needed. Sizes include youth sizes 4-6 and 7-8. New items are preferred. If you would like to contribute, please place these clothing items in the designated box in the back of the church.
