Generations of families and friends have met for many years on a summer weekend in August to play games, listen to music and enjoy the famous fried chicken dinner while showing their support for the kids who call St. Joe’s “home.” This beloved community event has been a local tradition for 172 years.
We hope you’ll join us to support our mission of “Giving Children a Home” during this Picnic season. Your support allows us to continue serving nearly 1,500 children and families each year.
