What We Do

Episcopal Appalachian Ministries

Teens and Adults spend one week each summer repairing homes in the Appalachian region of southwest Virginia

30 Hour Famine

Young people fast for 30 hours in order to learn about hunger in our world and raise money for the hunger relief organization, World Vision

The Backpack Program

In cooperation with NORWESCAP and The United Way of Warren County, St. James' volunteers assemble backpacks of nutritious foods weekly for hungry children in the elementary schools of Hackettstown.

We join with communities all over America as we collect money in soup bowls on Super Bowl Sunday. The funds are used for local hunger efforts, like food pantries and soup kitchens.

Special feast days, like Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving, we assist local families with holiday and basic food items.
