Franklin School Pathways
A group of committed volunteers go to Franklin School each week to offer homework help and enrichment activities to students with limited opportunities for enrichment. This program has resulted in improvements in the student's school performance and attendance, and has brought joy to students and volunteers alike. If you would like to make a difference in a child's life, contact Curt Hahn to find out more.
St. James Thrift Shop
The St. James Thrift Shop was started by the women of St. James in 1965 to help purchase new curtains, etc. for the Common Room at the church. It has been a busy mainstay in Keene ever since. St. James Thrift Shop is located at 25 Lamson Street in the Jonathan Daniels building next to the church. It offers gently used items for sale and its wide inventory includes clothing for men, women, teens and children. There is also a substantial collection of household items, books, and craft supplies. Approximately half of the proceeds from the shop are given away to a variety of local charities. The rest is used for shop operations and to support the ministries of St. James. The shop currently supports over 50 organizations with its donations. Thrift Shop Hours: Monday-Friday, 10-4 and Saturday, 10-2. Donations are received only during shop hours on Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Saturday. (No donations accepted on Tuesday or Thursday)
100 Nights Meals
During the coldest months, when the 100 Nights Shelter is open, St. James provides simple meals of soup, bread, salad and other goodies on select weekends to the shelter. We prepare the food at the St. James kitchen and bring it over to the shelter to serve. If you would like to donate ingredients, cook or serve, you are welcome to pitch in! Contact Anna Goettle.
Friends Who Cook
On the first Sunday of the month from Sept - May, the Friends Who Cook make a really great breakfast at 9am. While members of the church really enjoy this monthly feast, all are welcome to this breakfast, which is particularly popular with our neighbors on cold mornings. If you'd like to be a part of the Friends Who Cook team, contact Bob Walsh

Getting Out There
St. James takes part, and often plans, events out in our community. You will find members of St. James worshipping in public places, taking part in local demonstrations and vigils, taking part on community boards, serving those in need and being committed and active citizens working to bring God's light into the world.
