Feeding the Hungry at Noon …

This pandemic is disrupting the lives of those who live on our Portland streets in an alarming way. In fact, a number of helping agencies have stopped providing needed food. So St. James is helping even more. We are partnering with Pastor Bruce Arnold in providing food, bottled water, socks, and hygiene items every weekday (Monday through Friday) at 12:00 Noon in the Park Blocks in front of our building. The Multnomah Health Authority has “strongly recommended” that those over age sixty not participate in these distributions, but we can provide needed items for others to distribute. Our St. James Social Ministry continues to purchase items thanks to your faithful offerings to St. James.

Among those we serve, did you know that one item most desired is new socks? Did you know that a packet of wipes serves as a “quick shower?” Did you know that protein drinks are keeping folks healthy? You supply all these items, as well as other food and needed items five days a week to our neighbors in need. Thank you for putting your faith in action.
