St. James Partnership


  • Our partnership with St. James School. We assist with reading,and with a regular clothing depot for needy kids through our “Cool Clothes for Kids” project.

    On SHOPPING DAY at St. James School volunteers arrive early to set out the clothes. When all is ready, a class will assemble on the carpet to talk about clothing. Afterwards the children are free to shop at no charge and choose from a wonderful variety of almost new clothing – sorted, sized and washed by volunteers. To join this crew of people concerned about issues related to clothing and children, please call Nancy Post 767-6850 or contact the church office.

  • Our HAM DINNER & AUCTION added $1,000.00 to COOL CLOTHES FOR KIDS project. Together with money from the Wesley C Smith Fund and the Watkin Fund for Poverty and At-Risk Youth we will be able to purchase at a favourable price such items as shoes, winter jackets and underwear – in addition to the already purchased cupboard. Thanks to this grant from the United Church Seeds of Hope program we now have a cupboard in which to store some of the inventory.

  • We can use new or gently-used boys’ and girls’ clothing and outerwear for all seasons, freshly laundered and folded, sizes for grades JK – 8.  photo 3 photo 1We also can use help with sorting, laundering, folding, and delivering.  Monetary donations are used for shoes, boots, winter wear, and personal care products.  Call Mary at 767-5620 or email her at IMG_3984 IMG_3985 IMG_3986 to “jump on the school bus!”  See some happy kids here.
  • At Christmas we assist needy Children’s Aid families with gifts for their children.
