Help of Beaufort through St. John's Lutheran Church
We participate with other churches in the community with HELP of Beaufort,
to respond to those who need assistance. St. John's has been supporting HELP of Beaufort for a long time.
HELP of Beaufort is the largest all volunteer organization in Beaufort County that provides direct service to those in need. HELP accepts referrals from local churches, the Department of Social Services, the EOC, and other established agencies.
The 5TH Annual Community Chili Cookoff to benefit HELP of Beaufort was held on Saturday, February 6, 2016.

HELP of Beaufort Collection Summer 2017 Break
Normally we collect items for HELP of Beaufort on the fourth Sunday of each month.
Due to a surplus from the Postal Workers drive and other clubs from high schools that did end of the year service projects, we have been asked to take the summer off from collecting food.
An initiative of the Social Ministries Committee is to re-energize that support. One way is to collect food and personal items on the fourth Sunday of each month. Of course, you can drop items off in the narthex ANYTIME.
Please bring nonperishable items such as:
*rice *canned meat and vegetables *toilet paper
*grits *boxed macaroni & cheese
*dry cereal *powdered laundry detergent
Leave the items on (or around) the credenza next to the nursery.
