Members of St. James’ Episcopal Church serve the community through a growing list of outreach programs.
Hereford Food Bank
Part of our responsibility is to give from our abundance to others. St. James’ members tend to give a little more if we specify the items, so for March, please donate Personal care items; tooth paste, soap, razors, tooth brush, and/or comb. In this way we work together to shine our light in our community.
Saint James Parkton Thrift Shop
St. James Parkton is opening a Thrift shop. The opening date will be Saturday October 10th. The hours will be from 10am to 2pm. The shop will be open the 2nd Saturday of each month. Signs will be posted.

Dear St. James Episcopal Church:
On behalf of My Neighbors Foundation and Hereford High School FBLA, we would like to thank you for sponsoring a Hereford family for Christmas.
This year we supported thirty two families for Christmas. With you help, we made several children have a special Christmas day.
May you have a Happy New Year. Thanks again for your support
Sincerely Linda Price, Manager
