It is with great excitement that we announce that the John Donnelly Memorial Garden received a special grant from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development through the Diocese of Syracuse! The money from this grant will be used to help  us expand our garden project that we started last year that aims to provide our pantry with fresh produce! We can’t wait to get working. Let’s hope and pray for another fruitful summer! Below are the new details!

The John Donnelly Memorial Garden
Calling all gardeners AND those who LOVE to just get dirty! I would like to proudly announce that not only is our food pantry community garden expanding onto 20 Laurel St. it will also hold the namesake of St. James beloved Farmer John. Our garden last year would not have survived the summer without the dedication and expertise of John Donnelly. He will be greatly missed by the garden crew this summer, thankfully he has passed on some of his knowledge to us! We will need more help then ever this summer with the expanded plot so PLEASE e-mail Lynette if you and/or your family would like to be a part of this GREAT project. 

Check out how the GARDEN is coming so far! Keep up the great work guys!

Over 18 volunteers came to honor Martin Luther King Jr. on the National Day of Service by preparing 100+ bagged lunches that were donated to the St. Ambrose Soup Kitchen.
