Volunteers are already at work on preparations for our Annual Christmas Dinner for the Homeless!
Contributions and Donations toward Gift Bags
We'll be offering our guests a gift of a nylon backpack with some necessary and usable items for those living on the streets or in area shelters, which we've priced to cost about $15 each. Please consider making a financial contribution toward our bulk purchase of items.
You can give online, here. Under "Funds," choose "Other Donations," and note "Christmas Bag Donation" in the memo box. Or, send your check to St. James with the notation: “Christmas Bag Donation" on the memo line.
If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions, please email Margaret Blades, here, or phone her at 225-755-6532 or 225-505-3105.
