    We have continuous collections for 

    St. John's Breadline:  We collect plastic containers with lids which are used to send home meals for those who are served through St. John's Breadline, a ministry to feed the hungry in Springfield, IL.  There is a collection barrel located on the main floor hallway.  

    Shoeman Ministry:  We collect good used shoes to donate to the Shoeman Ministry, who use these shoes to provide for needs in both the United States and various countries in Africa.  For more information on the Shoeman Ministry please go to their website.  There is a collection barrel on the main floor hallway.  We ask that all pair of shoes either have their laces tied together or have a rubber band holding them together.  

    Penny Jar / Angel Tree:  We collect loose change in an empty 5 gallon water bottle located on a table in the main hallway. The money collected is used to purchase items for the local Angel Tree ministry which provides Christmas gifts for children in need.  

    Food Bank:  We have a grocery shopping cart located in the main hallway where you may drop off food items for the community food bank. The community food bank is located in the Salvation Army Store.  There is a list of the items most needed in the shopping cart, but all food is accepted.
