Halloween Carnival at St. John’s Shelter

Most of these kids never experience a carnival … but they now have something to talk about — a Halloween carnival with games, face painting, bounce houses, and entertainment. It was a delightful afternoon for all with plenty of smiles and fun. They decorated pumpkins, were captivated by the magician, donned masterpieces from the balloon artist and enjoyed cupcakes and goody bags. The children were extremely appreciative and we felt privileged to give them a happy memory.


Coat Drive at St. John’s Shelter

Chilly weather makes anyone want to bundle up in a nice, warm coat. Imagine what it would be like if you didn't have one. Many of the women and children at St. John’s left dangerous situations with just the clothes on their backs. Our staff organized a coat drive to benefit the shelter. Seeing the appreciation in the eyes of the women reminded us why we get involved.
