St. James UMC Giving Tree
The Giving Tree will help people in need in two areas affected by Hurricane Maria – Puerto Rico and St. Thomas.  We are asking for donations to help address basic needs such as providing water bottles with filters so that residents can have clean drinking water.  St. James is partnering with a women’s and a men’s correctional facility to provide gifts to the children of those incarcerated.   We are also requesting that the congregation provide ‘Atlanta Blessings’  which are gifts of hats, gloves and throws for those living on the streets of Atlanta.  We have angels on the tree for all of these gifts.  Please bless these families by selecting angels from the tree.   All purchased gifts should be unwrapped & placed in gift bags.  If you need more information or want to help,  please email outreach@stjamesumc.org.
 
St. James UMC Giving Tree Opportunities to Serve
We need servants at the Outreach table for 10 minutes after each Sunday worship and Wednesday Bible Study service to help the congregation with selecting angels from the tree.  Please email outreach@stjamesumc.org  to let me know which Sunday/Wednesday service you’re available to serve.
