Outreach Opportunities

Teachers’ Toolbox

St. John’s sponsors an outreach to teachers at a school in our neighborhood that helps to provide much needed supplies for their classrooms. We stock a wide variety of items such as crayons, paper, scissors, craft items, paper towels, hand sanitizer, etc. for teachers to select from. We also take requests for special items that teachers might need. Parishioners donate money and supplies and also help while the Toolbox is open.

The Guild of St. George

The Guild of St. George is a collaborative outreach project of Episcopal Churches in the Oklahoma City metro area. Founded in 1983, and housed at St. Paul’s Cathedral, The Guild assists those in need by helping with utility bills, bus tokens, medical prescriptions, birth certificates, and state id’s. Open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 9am until noon, the Guild of St. George is operated totally by volunteers.

The Homeless Alliance

Once a month, St. John’s helps to serve lunch at a local homeless shelter. We also collect items to donate to the clients at the shelter.

Bring a Turkey to Church

Each year, on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, we collect donations of frozen turkeys and cash to donate to Santa Maria Virgen, the Diocese of Oklahoma’s Oklahoma City Hispanic Mission.

Christmas Outreach

Before the Christmas season, we look for different organizations that could use our help. In recent years we have collected items and cash to benefit the Oklahoma City Homeless Alliance, foster children in Oklahoma County, and Whirlwind Mission, the Diocese of Oklahoma’s Native American Mission.

Loops of Love

A group for sewers, knitters and crocheters who enjoy making things to comfort others in times of need.  These items include prayer shawls, warm scarves, socks and mittens, blankets, and stuffed animals. Contact persons: Kathleen Ferguson and Patricia Riden
