Outreach at St. John’s – “Christmas in July”

Outreach at St. John’s will be accepting monetary donations and unwrapped gifts to support a special project. Christmas in July is a collection by Outreach to help meet the gift requests from social workers across the state of Connecticut for the many children who would otherwise not receive a gift at Christmas. (This is a separate program from St John’s December Giving Tree for Covenant to Care). This collection will continue through July 30.

Thank you for any support you can offer.

Safe Haven Collection for June

Safe Haven assists in providing services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Please consider donating one new pair of women’s or children’s (all sizes) underwear or one dish detergent. Items may be dropped off at the church office, any time.

St. John’s Church supports GWIM

St. John’s Church supports GWIM as the main supplier of food for Labor Day lunch bags which are given to those in need on Labor Day.

Outreach at St. John’s – June

Outreach at St. John’s will be accepting monetary donations to support two special projects in June:

  • Christmas in July is a collection to be used by Outreach to purchase gift cards and toys to help meet the gift requests from social workers across the state of Connecticut for the many children who would otherwise not receive a gift at Christmas. (This is a separate program from St John’s December Giving Tree).
  • Outreach will also be purchasing gift cards to benefit the displaced residents of the Lounsbury Street Fire to help them in replacing their belongings (clothing, household items, items needed for work, etc. ) so they can begin getting back to a normal living situation. Please look for the marked envelopes or ask an usher.
