Time Talent: Upcoming Outreach Opportunities

Midnight Run
A group of St. John’s parishioners travel into Manhattan to deliver food, clothes, toiletries, and conversation to people who are homeless. There is much prep work involved so we always need many volunteers.

St Johns’ next run is scheduled for Friday evening, January 17th, 2020.

• JEANS
