Since 1923, St. James Episcopal Church has been feeding and tending God’s sheep through neighborhood outreach by providing essential resources like food and assistance with clothing, shelter, & transportation. We celebrate Neighbor Day each year to shine the light on this important work and raise funds to continue our ministry.
Our annual Neighbor Day Online Auction is an exciting affair where high-value or unique items are sold to the highest bidder to support the ministries of outreach at St. James. The goal of the auction is to generate higher bids to maximize the funds raised. The atmosphere is playfully competitive as participants bid against each other to “win”!
During this, our 100th year, we are raising funds to perform necessary capital improvements that will assure continued outreach for many years to come. Planned improvements include expansion of our kitchen & food pantry, replacement of our obsolete heating & air conditioning system, and renovation of our great hall and church building to provide greater accessibility for community events.
For several months, we have been asking local businesses that we patronize to support our efforts by making cash contributions or providing merchandise or gift cards to include in our auction. Currently, we are asking family and friends of St. James to donate high-value or unique items to include in the auction. Please click the Donation Form link at the top of the page to contact us regarding a donation you would like to make.
