St. John's Angel Tree was continued in 2020 but in a slightly different manner. We went virtual. There was an on-line list of families and their gift requests. We were able to select a name and purchase a requested gift that would let them know we care.
The United Methodist Women was able to collect food on all four Sundays in February 2021. Our donations this year went to the Jesus Focus Ministry located in Southampton. Following Jesus' example of feeding the many, we can do our small part to help feed families in need.
The St John's UMW conducted an ingathering in September, 2020. Items were taken to United Methodist Neighborhood Services in Philadelphia. Items collected included:
Pajamas: Men, women, children, toddlers and infants
