Hands to Service

Groveland and Joyce Uptown Food Shelves joyfully receive Saint Paul’s weekly donations. According to news outlets, furloughed federal workers are now utilizing these resources as well. January’s theme is PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS (razors, baby shampoo, soap, deodorant, etc.) Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in baskets in the Narthex.

The Winter Goods Drive, the first donation campaign for 2019 by Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness (DCEH), is a collection for warm winter outerwear to support our neighbors experiencing homelessness. Now through the end of February you can bring new/gently-used winter items such as hats, gloves, scarves, and coats to Saint Paul’s; look for a bin in the narthex/lobby. Thank you so much for your support!
