This past weekend members of the Redwing football team, basketball team and Youth Action Committee volunteered their time to help out with the St. Johns Baby Pantry.  Through this program, families are able to participate in the Christmas Adoption Program and “adopt” a child or children that are in need in our area.

Gifts were dropped off to be distributed this weekend and Redwing student volunteers were on hand to assist with loading the gift bags.  During a normal year, students would have also helped out with an open house for the families of the adopted children.  During the open house families would have received their gifts and been served breakfast.  Another big part of the open house are the activities including writing letters to Santa, making crafts and even decorating cookies.    Due to Covid restrictions, the open house was not an option this year, but many students were still able to help out and even make some lasting connections with the families.

This year  a record 175 children were registered and adopted locally.  The St. Johns Baby Pantry also provides food, clothing and diapers to children in need throughout the year.  For ways to get involved or for more information on this program, please the St. Johns Baby Pantry Facebook page.  Thank you to Shannon Nobis for the photos and information.  Go Redwings!
