Hattie Larlham

Rejoice has partnered with Hattie Larlham to provide worship services with the residents on a monthly basis. The residents enjoy the simple presence of members with them and especially the special music that they can share while they listen. To learn more about this organization check the Hattie Larlham website.

Hudson Food Pantry

Located at Rejoice Lutheran Church, the Hudson Food Pantry was established in April 2012 as an extension of the community services sponsored and is funded by the Hudson Community Service Association (HCSA). 
Rejoice Lutheran members felt called to action when confronted with the fact that two hundred families living within the Hudson City School District fall within Federal Poverty Guidelines, roughly 3% of the total Hudson population. Volunteers from member organizations and churches that make up the HCSA provide the labor and time needed to staff the various operations necessary to obtain, shelve, promote and distribute the needed food items. For more information, make a donation, or sign up to volunteer please go to Hudson Food Pantry website.

St. Pauly Used Clothing Collection Shed

This clothing shed is located at the back of our parking lot. Donations are shipped regularly to organizations in the US and developing countries all over the world!

Bagged and tied donations can be dropped into the chute on the front of the shed. Receipts are available in the box on the door. The shed is generally unattended, but, donations are kept organized inside the shed by volunteers several times a week and collected by St. Pauly weekly.

All clothing, shoes, sneakers, belts, purses, blankets, sheets, pillowcases, drapes and stuffed toys are accepted. No donations are cut up or shredded. We cannot accept rags, fabric scraps, pillows, toys or household goods.
