Mission Statement
…whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.
Matthew 25:40 NAB
We make these words of Jesus a reality by providing a space for spiritual nourishment and assisting the needy in Lowndes County with food, clothing, and utility bills. Gently used clothing, household goods, and kitchen items are sold at our Thrift Shop at an affordable price. Total profit from the sales is used to assist families in need with their utility bills. We give food and clothing to those expressing a need for these items.

We also accept financial donations and non-perishable food which go directly to aid families in need. Canned and other non-perishable food can be placed in the basket in the Church foyer.

Household items and clothing can be placed in the St. Francis Center trailer in the St. John Church parking lot or brought to the St. Francis Center during normal business hours (Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday between 10 AM and 2 PM). We are unable to accept TVs or large furniture items; please call us if you have such items so that we can coordinate delivery to the family that may need them.

The Center is staffed by volunteers who support the mission of helping those in need. Call or email if you’d like to become a volunteer. Please pray that our mission may be fruitful as we minister to the needy in Lowndes County.

The Center is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. and the second Saturday of each month from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Phone: 242-8656
