Here are some M.O.R.E. facts from 2016. 

We distributed over 211,000 pounds of donated and purchased food. 

We operated on a budget of over $70,000, providing food, clothing and emergency financial assistance. 

We have about 100 volunteers serving about 180 families at any one time. 

In December, we assisted 12 homeless (5 households), including children.

In 2016, we helped 94 households to keep their housing or to avoid a utility shut-off, totaling about $19,000. 

We distributed clothing and toys for the Angel Tree and Toys For Tots programs to 148 children.

         -About 100 new coats were given to children. 

Also, last year we began giving out care packages to homeless men.


The CROP Walk date has been set for Sunday, October 14th , coinciding with World Communion Sunday.  If you would like St. John’s to participate again this year, a coordinator is needed for this event.  Please let us know if you are interested.
