Help During Covid-19

How Can I Help?

Some in our SJN family and community may not have access to basic needs such as food, medications or transportation to the MD. If you (and your family) are healthy, under the age of 60, have access and can utilize hand sanitizer, and are willing to help serve those in need, please e- mail Jo-Ann Duggan at to volunteer.

Herndon-Reston Cares

A new program has been launched to match local residents who need meals with local restaurants who need business. Those in need will fill out a form, which will be sent to a local restaurant, and then a pickup will be organized for the meal.

How can you help? A monetary gift can make a real difference – a donation of only $10 can provide one takeout meal to someone in need. Volunteers are also needed to serve in many ways: as a no-contact pickup and delivery drivers for individuals who cannot go to the restaurant themselves; to help translate information into other languages (primarily Spanish); to make phone calls to individuals who do not have email (in both English and Spanish); and to help with general administrative tasks.

Volunteer Sewers Needed!
A generous parishioner has donated funds to make face masks for SJN parishioners. We are now calling all sewers to help sew masks!
Kits will be provided to volunteer sewers which will include fabric, instructions, prayer cards with instructions on how to wear the mask on the reverse side, and zip lock bags in which to place the completed masks (1 to a bag). We are asking that volunteers complete 60 masks within 7-10 days from the date they pick up their kits.
We are also in search of supplies: elastic, bias tape, and 1/4″ cloth ribbon.
If you are interested in helping sew masks, or can donate any of the above supplies, please contact Jo-Ann Duggan at
