ST. JAMES CORONAVIRUS OUTREACH

PLEASE NOTE: THIS OUTREACH IS NOT A PHYSICAL MINISTRY WHERE ANYTHING IS DELIVERED BY THE DONOR IN PERSON.  PURCHASES ARE MADE ONLINE AND PROFESSIONALLY DELIVERED DIRECTLY BY THE COMPANY SELLING THE ITEM, MUCH LIKE AN AMAZON WISHLIST.

You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shade of the Almighty, Say to the LORD, “My refuge and fortress, my God in whom I trust.” He will rescue you from the fowler’s snare, from the destroying plague.
- Psalm 91: 1-3

This crisis may have caught many of us unaware, with reduced or lost income, and increased expenses and anxiety.  You may be in a situation where you are unable to provide the supplies necessary to weather the storm at home.  Know that God is with you, loves you, and that there are people who care about you and who want to help.

 

If you are in need of items that can be purchased online and delivered to you (directly by the company selling the item, like Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc. -- donors do NOT make in-person deliveries), please use the form below to make your request. You will find a list of suggested items below. 

 

You can request any item from anywhere provided it is not a fresh food request (like fresh produce, dairy, eggs, etc.) or a full shopping trip.

Please note that there is NO GUARANTEE that requests on this list will be fulfilled. However, we hope that many in our community will be able to step in to assist our neighbors in their time of need, acting as Jesus' hands and feet to perform works of mercy.

**You do not need to be a St. James parishioner to make or fulfill a request. You may request as many items as needed. There is an option to request items anonymously to protect privacy by only providing a delivery address.**

Please join us in praying Psalm 91 for comfort and strength during this trying time. God bless!
