St. John's will be hosting an American Red Cross
blood drive on August 17, 2020 from 1:00 - 6:00 PM

As you may have heard, there is high demand for blood throughout our area. If you have tried to sign up, you will notice that all the time slots have filled up. American Red Cross tests for the COVID-19 antibody therefore the time slots fill up quickly. We are working on scheduling another one in the fall and will publicize as soon as a date is set.  They discourage walk-ins at this time.

Please email Rebecca Schiltz at schiltz4@sbcglobal.net if you would like to volunteer. We need 5 volunteers to cover two shifts. 
St. John’s July  BEDS Plus  Challenge Update!
Thank you for your continued support for our July BEDS Plus Challenge. To date we will be providing 155 meals to clients in need! We are well on our way to doubling our original goal of 80 meals for the month.
BEDS Plus is presently providing over  4000  individual meals a week to at risk clients / families that are housed in motels and over  100   families and individuals who are housed and experiencing food insecurity. They couldn’t continue to support these vulnerable individuals at this time without the help of individuals and businesses in the community providing meals on a daily basis. 
YOU can help too!
Take the St. John’s Challenge! 

With every $ 5.00  donation we will be able to purchase  1  shelf stable meal that will be delivered to a BEDS client staying in a motel or shelter. At the end of the month our Meals to Go team will purchase food items that will be packaged into individual meal kits and delivered to BEDS!
 
Here are some easy ways to donate
* Purchase a gift card through our TRIP program (indicate BEDS meals) 
* Drop off your donation with your weekly offering (indicate BEDS meals) 
* Contact Katie Pece (k.pece@sjlagrange.com  to use Venmo to donate)
 
Help us make our goal of providing  160  meals this month!
