Share the Joy!

This year St. James is collecting toys and other gift items to be used by UCM   (United Community Ministries) for their “Share the Joy” holiday “shop.”  UCM serves needy families along the Route 1 corridor.  Registered parents will come to UCM to “shop” for their children (infants to 15 years old).  Gift items should be new and unwrapped.  There will be a collection box in the gallery.  All items are due by December 16.  Gift cards and checks will also be collected.  Checks can be made out to St. James with “UCM – Share the Joy” in the memo line.  Thanks for your part in making this a special holiday for others.
