The children of St. James had a total of $410 in the birthday bank. We had been thinking about what we were going to do with that when Hurricane Harvey hit Texas. Then Irma formed. I asked the children if they would like to donate their $410 to the Episcopal Relief and Development fund for use in helping those in need after the hurricanes. We talked about how God would want us to help our neighbors. They all agreed. We asked the congregation of St. James to help us raise money to add to what we had in the birthday bank. In just a little over 2 weeks St. James added a total of $1291 to the $410 we already had. This week we will be sending $1700 to the Episcopal Relief and Development Fund to help with the hurricane(s) relief fund.
