  • J.O.I.N. - Joint Organization for Inner-City Needs

    • Joint Organization of Inner-City Needs  (J.O.I.N) Ministry finds JOY assisting those in need by teaming with the much larger St. Vincent DePaul  Society (clothes donations) and J.O.I.N agency of the Catholic Diocese of Columbus.  They are both located in the same building at 578 East Main Street, Columbus, 43215.  This ministry has always been identified as JOIN even though we support both organizations weekly.

      Our Parishioners are very generous and donate a variety of items daily to the East entrance of the Ministry Center. Our J.O.I.N ministry offers support to the poor by sorting the items and discarding anything that we determine is not acceptable or appropriate to pass on to another individual.  We may discard donated items that are broken, unclean, or have holes in them.  We sort clothes donated by gender and size. This helps the downtown office as space is always limited and volunteers are sporadic at times as parts and of the building are without heat and air conditioning.

      We sort every Tuesday night from 5:45-6:45 pm. Parishioners may participate  every week, monthly, quarterly or whenever they have a free Tuesday.  It is a great opportunity to involve the entire family, as there are no age limits in this ministry.

      We are always in need of individuals who maybe interested in helping deliver the items to the downtown location Monday –Friday between 10 am -1 pm.
