Mission & Outreach...

October Missions:

LOCAL: October 18 / Harvest Home

The Schuylkill Haven Food Pantry inventory is extremely low because of a greater need in our community combined with reduced collections.

On Sunday, October 18, we celebrating the Festival of Harvest Home and collected 461 items for the Schuylkill Haven Food Pantry! Thank you to everyone who helped make this collection such a success!

LOCAL: October 24 & 31 / Winter Clothing Giveaway

Because of a great need in our community, Saint John's held our first ever "winter clothing giveaway" on the lawn Saturday, October 24. About 50 people received much-needed items to prepare for the winter months. 

 

Thanks to the generosity of our members and friends, we will be able to hold another "giveaway day" on Saturday, October 31 from 9-11am! Contact Sue Gipe or Fiona Jacoby for more information.
