PADS – (Public Assistance to Deliver Shelter)
St. James has joined other area churches to open its doors to provide food and shelter to area homeless. “Guests” are hosted at St. James and are provided a hot dinner, clean bedding, breakfast and a sack lunch for the following day. Volunteers are needed to work four-hour shifts between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. on Wednesday nights from October through April. Additional volunteers are needed to prepare food, set up and clean up the following morning. A training program for this ministry is provided each year.
