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.
April – Canned fruit; apple sauce, pears, peaches, mixed fruit, fruit cups

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
