Donations For Haiti

A special collection is being taken from the pews today.  The collection for today will be given to support the work of the Haiti Task Force.  Checks can be made payable to “Diocese of San Joaquin” with “Haiti” in the memo line.

Foyer Notre Dame in Haiti

At Foyer Notre Dame, the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti provides residents a place to sleep, meals, community, and safety from the streets. Sponsoring one resident costs $200 per month.  Put your contribution into one of the envelopes in the pews marked “Haiti.”

Foyer Notre Dame in Haiti

For 2012 our vestry set a goal for St. John’s to raise $2,400 to sponsor one lady at Foyer Notre Dame for an entire year.  By March we had surpassed our original goal of $2,400 and had already sent 2 checks totaling $2,723.05.  Contributions continued to be generous for the rest of the year.  To-date, October 2012, we have actually raised enough money to sponsor 2 ladies for an entire year.  We were proud to present another check at Convention for $2,158.95 for a total contribution of $4,882; full sponsorship for 2 ladies.
