The Red Bird Trailers will not be open to accept donations this year.  Hopefully, this ministry can resume in the future.

Thank You,

Food and Clothing Collections

The need for food and clothing by our disadvantaged neighbors in the Eastwick section of Philadelphia and Northeast Philadelphia goes on throughout the year. Your donations of canned goods and non-perishable dry foods are greatly needed and much appreciated. In addition, there is a great need for clothing that is appropriate for persons seeking employment  Please place your food donations in the shopping carts located in the hallway and clothing may be hung on the coat rack across from the church office. St. John’s frequently partners with the food and clothing banks at Eastwick United Methodist Church in the city of Philadelphia.


Other Mission Opportunities

There are a variety of other opportunities for persons to serve in missions at St. John’s. There are opportunities to provide meals for those in need through Caring forFriends as well as to participate in special collections of food, clothing and gift items during the Christmas and Easter seasons. As local, national, and international need arise, St. John’s responds to requests for assistance through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). Please check out the United Methodist Men, United Methodist Women, Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry web pages for additional mission opportunities.
