Welcome Home Box Project Success

The Kearney Center Welcome Home Box project has wrapped up and all we can say is THANK YOU! Thanks to the generosity of St. John’s members, eight local families are getting a great start in a new home. A special thank you to the children of St. John’s who decorated the Welcome Home Boxes with beautiful hearts and to the St. John’s volunteers who faithfully sorted the donated items as they arrived and packed the boxes with love.

When Megan Duncan of The Kearney Center heard how many boxes St. John’s collected, she said, “Thank you all so much. I am so excited and can’t believe you have eight! This is such a blessing!” Two boxes were delivered to The Kearney Center in late October to greet families that were moving into their homes and six boxes were sent to Kearney just this week. There were families moving into new housing that day, so as you are reading this message, the recipients of your generosity are unpacking brand new items that will make their house a home.

Thank you, St. John’s, for loving your neighbor!

“For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Galatians 5:14
