Help April Harris Help the Needy in Hoboken and Our Area
 
April Harris and an A-list team of three daily volunteers meet with residents of our area and provide them with food, clothes, and other donated items.  Her center, In Jesus’ Name Charities, is located on the ground floor level of our parish center.   She has established a relationship with the people she serves and is a beacon of hope for people who cannot make ends meet.  The churches and synagogue of Hoboken support April along with some very generous donors.
 
She is entering the busiest time of the year with Thanksgiving just around the corner.  She provides all the items to serve a holiday dinner to scores of families.  The intake of donations, the sorting and other tasks require lots of help.  Our Young Adults plan to help April on these days and times:
 
Saturday the 18th:  12-4pm (2 hour commitment acceptable)
 
Sunday the 19th:  5:30-7:30pm
 
Tuesday, 21st:  6:30-8:30pm
 
This volunteer work is not only for the young adults but any of our parishioners.  Please check your schedule and contact April at 201-792-2112 or e-mail her at:
 
 
April, who grew up in Hoboken, started her ministry 35 years ago after some horrible, fatal fires in town.  She lives the spirit of St. Francis as a Third Order Franciscan and never charges for anything.  She also knows the people she serves very well and tries to minister to many of their other needs.
 
Let us live the spirit of Thanksgiving and join our young adults and other parishioners to help those in need.
 
Peace,
Fr. Alex Santora
