Chester County Youth Detention Center has movie nights and other activities for the children they serve. Parishioners are needed to gather and bag collected items.
Christmas Food Baskets- December
There are so many families in our community in need of holiday food during Christmas. Parishioners take donated food items and put together baskets to take to families for a holiday meal.
Christmas Store – December
There are a shocking number of families in our community in need of presents for their children at Christmas because they cannot afford them. Parishioners donate new toys and clothes, however we need people to organize all the gifts and transport them to the location where they will be distributed.
St. James School- Daily during the school year (as your schedule allows)
St. James School is a faith-based Philadelphia middle school in the Episcopal tradition, committed to educating traditionally under resourced students in a nurturing environment. Church of the Advent runs fundraisers and recruits volunteers throughout the year to help St. James achieve their goals. They have volunteer opportunities ranging from tutoring students, running after school activities, or answering phones at the front desk. They also have a range of clean up days around the grounds.
