Reaching out to those in need this holiday season
In our St. James’ tradition, we ask you to consider how you might brighten someone’s holiday. 2020 has taken a toll on so many, especially the elderly, those with limited finances, and those without homes. Due to the Coronavirus, we need to make a few changes in how we answer that need. Please consider if either or both opportunities for giving might fit in your holiday giving plans this year:
Nursing homes have been especially hard hit during this pandemic. As part of safety protocol, most residents are not able to have visitors and are confined to their rooms or wings of their residence. Adopt-a-Family has asked us to “adopt” 20 individuals of the Brandywine Nursing Home and who are without family. Our donations will go to individual gift cards.
Please send your contribution in the form of a check to the St. James’ parish office:
St. James’ Church
2106 St. James’ Church Road
Wilmington, DE 19808
(please mark: Adopt-a-Family in your check memo.)
Deadline for contributions: Monday, December 7th.
Emmanuel Dining Room
Warm socks, gloves, and hats are needed for the winter season.
While most of our guests are adults, we do have many children during the holiday season. So, all sizes are appreciated!
Below are the “CONTACTLESS DROP OFF” dates/times we will be in the parish hall parking lot and there to receive your donations of socks/gloves/hats.
- Monday, 12/7 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
